For years, Kim Long suffered with chronic heartburn. She relied on antacids and prescription drugs for 10 years and found only temporary relief. She had reflux disease.
Kim was referred to Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Dr. Randy Haluck, Director of Minimally Invasive Surgery. He recommended a permanent cure, an advanced laparoscopic surgical procedure for reflux. The procedure was performed through tiny incisions and Kim had less discomfort and a faster recovery than traditional surgery.
Best of all, Kim was feeling great and back to teaching English at Shippensburg University just two weeks after her surgery. Minimally invasive surgery for reflux has changed her life forever.
