Company description
Our practice specializes in the latest and most advanced treatment for reflux including: medical, endoscopic and surgical treatment options. Anti-reflux surgery, performed through laparoscopic incisions in the abdominal wall, can be effective in treating the underlying mechanical defect present in GERD. The Nissen fundoplication, involves wrapping a portion of the stomach around the esophagus to reinforce the weakened valve mechanism that is present in GERD. While effective, these surgeries require general anesthesia, overnight hospitalization and a recovery period lasting several days.
Over the last several years there has been considerable interest and research in the area of endocsopic (use of a scope placed into the stomach through the mouth) treatment for reflux in order to avoid surgery. Several devices have been tired, however the EsophyX is currently the only one still in use. The EsophyX Procedure is a flexible device that is introduced through the mouth and into the stomach similar to a routine endoscopy.
The EsophyX tightens the muscular valve between the stomach and the esophagus, thus restoring the body’s natural barrier mechanism to gastric reflux. Patients are treated on an outpatient basis and are typically able to return to normal activities the following day.
