The objective of this video was to provide an educational tool for surgical trainees to learn the operational steps of a laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication. Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is a key component in the management of gastroesophageal reflux disease and an essential procedure in the training of General Surgery residents. However, volume and exposure can vary among surgical residency programs. Particularly in the case of advanced laparoscopic procedures, studies have demonstrated low exposure rates at many teaching hospitals. There is a need for alternative methods for surgical trainees to learn about procedures such as the Nissen fundoplication.
We present an educational video of Nissen fundoplication performed by an experienced, fellowship-trained minimally invasive surgeon. Each step of fundoplication is explained and demonstrated for the optimal trainee learning experience.
