surgery for hiatal hernia

i had an EGD done and was told I had a huge hiatal hernia but wasn't told which kind.  I was wondering if they ever did surgery to correct tthis? and if so how and what was done?

Yes. The surgery for a hiatal hernia is the Nissen Fundaplication, where a portion of the fundus is wrapped around the esophagus in the area of the lower esophageal sphincter.

As for the type, 90% of all hiatal hernias are sliding hernias, not paraesophageal, so it's probably a sliding hiatal hernia that you have.
