The management of refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy can be challenging. After conservative measures with medical management, dietary changes, and behavioral modification have failed, revision surgery can be considered. Preoperative evaluation should include radiographic and endoscopic studies to assess for any possible anatomic or functional etiologies. We present a case of a patient with refractory GERD after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy who was found to have a large sliding hiatal hernia. She was successfully treated with a hiatal hernia repair and conversion to roux-en-y gastric bypass.
