A hiatus hernia occurs when the normal opening in the diaphragm is too large. If the problem is not repaired, the stomach or other abdominal contents may bulge (herniate) into the chest, causing heartburn (acid reflux), difficulty in swallowing, chest pain, regurgitation and loss of exercise capacity. Hiatus hernia repair is almost always performed laparoscopically and is safely performed in patients well into their 80’s.
