Dr. Nathan Emerson has a special interest in endoscopic reflux surgery; he is specially trained to perform transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF), an innovative procedure that restores the body’s natural protection against esophageal reflux. Many patients suffer from heartburn and regurgitation despite adequate medical therapies. The TIF operation is an effective and safe procedure with minimal complication rates for those patients with difficulty controlling the symptoms of reflux.
He is board certified by the American Board of Surgery and is currently the Chief of Surgery at Baylor Medical Center at Irving. He is an experienced general surgeon capable of performing the full range of operations in the specialty as well as advanced laparoscopic techniques.
Dr. Emerson is married with three children. In his spare time, he enjoys fly-fishing, camping, hiking, reading, sailing, and running.
