Robot-Assisted Laparoscopic Belsey Fundoplasty for Gastroesophageal Reflux

Objectives: Belsey Mark IV fundoplasty is associated with less gas bloat and dysphagia compared to the Nissen wrap. Conventionally, a Belsey Mark IV fundoplasty requires a thoracotomy. Laparoscopic approaches to the Belsey procedure have not been satisfactory. By virtue of 3-D visualization and greater maneuverability, robot assistance can overcome the technical shortcomings of the laparoscopic… Continue Reading »
