NEW ON ORLIVE

SURGERY VIDEO: Paraesophageal Hernia Repair
New Program, June 17, 4:00 PM EDT
The human anatomy is designed such that the stomach should not enter the chest. But this is not the case for patients who have a paraesophageal hernia, where literally the stomach has pushed through the diaphragm and moved into the chest cavity.

Get an intimate look inside the abdomen and chest wall when Adrian Park, MD, Professor & Vice Chair, Department of Surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and Head, Division of General Surgery at the University of Maryland Medical Center, laparoscopically repairs this type of hernia. Watch as Dr. Park meticulously and methodically closes the diaphragm and then tacts the stomach to the esophagus to help ensure that the structures stay in the right place.

Viewers will be able to interact and ask questions via the ORLive website. Learn more about this program, and request a reminder on ORLive.com.
