Diseases of the gallbladder and appendix are common, and Dr. Jeffrey S Fronza is often called upon to treat patients suffering from these conditions by the Emergency Department or a primary care physician’s office. Less common diseases such achalasia, paraesophageal hernia, severe gastroesophageal reflux disease, and median arcuate ligament syndrome require an astute internist or gastroenterologist and a motivated patient in order for a surgeon to be called upon for evaluation.
Fortunately Dr. Jeffrey S Fronza is trained specifically to address these life-style limiting conditions of the gastrointestinal tract in a minimally-invasive manner. He has perfomed more LINX procedures than any other surgeon in Illinois. He has performed more median arcuate ligament releases than any other surgeon in Illinois. He performs more hiatal hernia repairs than any other surgeon in Illinois. He is the only surgeon at Northwestern Medicine who offers c-TIF (hiatal hernia repair in conjunction with a transoral incisionless fundoplication). He is the only surgeon at Northwestern Medicine to offer Enterra for patients with refractory gastroparesis.
Patients seek out his expertise and other physicians refer their patients for complex gastrointestinal conditions given Dr. Jeffrey S Fronza's reputation throughout the Midwest. Please contact our office to set up a consultation to discuss a surgical treatment of these often undertreated diseases.
