Mayo Clinic Fundoplication

 

Ghost Productions provided the Mayo Clinic with an animation of a Fundoplication procedure to treat stomach acid reflux. In Fundoplication, the top part of your stomach is folded and sewn around the lower esophageal sphincter; this reinforces the sphincter and makes it less likely for stomach acid to reach the esophagus.
