Although both medical and surgical therapies are effective for management of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), there is controversy about the cost-effectiveness of the antireflux surgery for long-term management of GERD. Compounding the difficulty in measuring cost-effectiveness is the fact that there is limited data on the ability of antireflux surgery to eliminate the need for antireflux medications after surgery.
