Hi,
Hiatus hernia is the protrusion of the upper part of the stomach into the thorax through a tear or weakness in the diaphragm.It is normally treated by medicines (proton pump inhibitors) .In case of only severe cases surgery is required.However normally the symptoms are controlled just by giving the medicines and reducing the weight.
