Dubai is the neo global nucleus of 21st century. Eminent masters with skills and exceptional talent are flocking here for two decades. UAE boasts a critical mass of these highly talented individuals, master clinicians, architects, culinary or sartorial experts.      

While we enjoy great weather, views and hospitality in some of the finest cuisine joints in the city and go home with a sweet taste in our mouth and a freshened mind and body, about one in five of us may be dreading the night ahead after evening excesses of culinary delights and drinks.  

Staying up late at night, waking up multiple times with burning sensation in chest or throat, pacing up and down in our room or trying to sleep while sitting in a chair is never an ideal way to spend the crucial potentially revival hours at night.  

It affects our rest, one’s family life and work the following day, least to mention the all-important good mood and humor which is so crucial for good home and work environment. Probably an ongoing concerned look replaces the calm and comfortable look of the person, suffering from GERD!  

Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a common condition affecting about 1 in 3 persons every now and then. However, in general public 1 in 5 persons (20%) do suffer from GERD that is severe enough to take medication, restrictive precautions and medical advice on regular basis.  

No age is exempt from heart burn or reflux, as commonly known. From new borns to the elderly in their 90s, anyone can have GERD and may require medical or surgical treatment.      

Medical treatment is safe and mandatory to avoid some serious complications of GERD, which could be cancer of Oesophagus (gullet). While medical treatment is ideal in short and medium term to keep the symptoms under control, Surgery is appropriate and recommended for medium to long term cure of the condition and to improve the quality of life.      

Surgery for the complex condition of GERD in a bespoke fashion in the hands of an expert surgeon in a good hospital setting is worth considering.  

Not only the quality of life improves after Laparoscopic Nissen’s Fundoplication ( a minimally invasive surgery done with a camera, also known as a keyhole or laparoscopic operation, involving few small cuts in the abdomen to carry out the operation, requiring only 1 night stay in the hospital.) but also the sartorial skills of an artistic surgeon will allow the sufferers from GERD to enjoy the culinary delights of master chefs in beautiful and sunny Dubai.
