Over the past few decades, a great scientific effort has been made to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This reflects a trend in modem medicine toward optimizing quality of life, reducing health-related lost working hours, and minimizing costs of chronic treatments. It also reflects a revived interest in diseases that can be studied using novel equipment and that can be cured using minimally invasive techniques. In an effort to further minimize surgical trauma, novel endoscopic techniques are beginning to challenge the standard therapeutic approach to GERD.
