This is a typical case of Gastro-oesophygitis, caused by not adequately chewing food & gulping it down the throat. You should chew your food properly, so that it mixes with the saliva, which is alkaline in nature, and then swallow your food to prevent acidity at the junction of the gullet & the stomach. Needless to say, avoid hot spicy food!!!

What is Laparoscopic surgery?
Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive or keyhole surgery should really be called Minimal Access Surgery. It is a specialized surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through ports introduced into small incisions of 0.5?1.2 cm. In Laparoscopic surgery the surgeon operates by looking at the magnified image displayed on TV monitors. Similar procedures performed in the chest cavity are called thoracoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic surgeries are popularly performed for gallstones disease, appendicitis, ventral and inguinal hernia and rectal prolapse. Now they are also performed for oesophageal, gastric and colo-rectal cancer and the operations for treating morbid obesity (Bariatric Surgery).
The advantages of minimal access surgery are less postoperative pain and early recovery and return to work. The complication of postoperative wound infection is eliminated. As the incisions are so small unsightly scars are avoided.
