Awards:Dr. Gillian is experienced and proficient in many areas of laparoscopic surgery but he maintains a particularly strong focus on the evaluation and management of patients with hernia issues and gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Dr. G. Kevin Gillian is a surgeon who treats some of the worst cases of gastrointestinal reflux disease, or GERD, which medication can’t control. He says the people who turn to him for a surgical solution have often suffered for years.

Dr. Gillian says, “When people get heartburn, that’s just a reflection of why they feel bad. There is damage to the esophagus and damage to the lining of the esophagus and they’re uncomfortable. I see people who are in the prime of life taking all the medications they are supposed to and they still feel terrible.”

Dr. Gillian is very excited about a newly-approved magnetic device called LINX, which can stop acid reflux with a minimally-invasive procedure.

” If the reflux stops, they don’t need the pills. They don’t need to alter their diet. They’re very happy,” he says.
