Abstract

QOL measurement is being reported with increasing frequency in the surgical literature. The authors have found, as have others, that the use of a generic instrument such as the SF36 in combination with a disease-specific instrument will provide the most comprehensive information. GERD is a significant health problem that primarily affects the QOL of a large segment of the population. New therapies for GERD continue to be developed and introduced into clinical practice. QOL assessment should be an important part of the evaluation of these new therapies.
