What is the stomach?
Recognising stomach problems
Reflux & Fundoplication
Reflux is a fairly common condition, often known as heartburn, as it creates a burning sensation/pain in the lower chest area. This happens when stomach acid escapes the stomach and flows into the oesophagus (food pipe). Fundoplication is a surgical procedure used to treat gastroesophageal conditions such as reflux.
Achalasia & Heller Myotomy
A Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumour (GIST Tumour) is a tumour that occurs in the gastrointestinal tract, most commonly found in the stomach or small intestine. GISTs can grow slowly over time, without causing any signs or symptoms, others can grow and spread very quickly. Find out more.
