Peptic Ulcer Disease - Surgery
Surgery Choices When surgery is done to treat an ulcer, it usually involves one or more of the following: Cutting one or more of the nerves to the stomach (vagotomy). Widening the opening of the bottom of the stomach (pyloroplasty). Removing part of the stomach (partial gastrectomy). What To Think About Because medicine for peptic ulcers works so well, surgery is rarely needed. If surgery is suggested, you may want to: Seek a second opinion and ask whether all medicine treatment options have been tried. Compare the cost of long-term medicine treatment to the one-time cost of surgery. Remember that no surgery can completely prevent ulcers from returning. Find a surgeon who has a lot of experience with this type of surgery.
