Diseases of the gallbladder and appendix are common, and our surgeons at Northwestern Surgical Associates are 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, and severe gastroesophageal reflux disease require an astute internist or gastroenterologist and a motivated patient in order for a surgeon to be called upon for evaluation.
Fortunately NSA has surgeons are trained specifically to address these life-style limiting conditions of the gastrointestinal tract in a minimally-invasive manner. Please contact our office to set up a consultation to discuss a surgical treatment of these often undertreated diseases.
LINX for Reflux Relief
Northwestern Surgical Associates offers LINX for reflux relief. Dr. Jeffrey Fronza was one of the first surgeons in Illinois to perform this procedure, and has performed more of these procedures than anyone else in Illinois. Patients who are diagnosed with GERD by pH testing, and who are seeking an alternative to continuous acid suppression therapy may benefit from LINX. Learn more about LINX.
