Surgery is a onetime procedure, most people get relief and it is important in young people. Alternative is to take medicines life long with dietary and lifestyle adjustment such as: stop smoking, avoid fatty food, take multiple small meals, and avoid alcohol. Surgery is quite safe and most gastrointestinal surgeons can do this laparoscopically.
