What do I need to bring to the hospital the day of my GERD surgery?

If you’re having TIF surgery, you’ll probably go home the same day, but you might want to bring an overnight bag just in case. Laparoscopic and open fundoplication procedures will require a hospital stay: two or three nights for laparoscopic surgery and four to six nights for open surgery. If you’re having one of these procedures, you should bring everything you’ll need for that time, including changes of underwear, glasses or contacts, headphones, and your medications.
