LINX Reflux Management

Do you suffer from acid reflux? You’ve probably seen the ads for different medicines, remedies and treatments for what many refer to as “acid reflux.” The more specific medical term is gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Some of the typical symptoms include frequent heartburn, regurgitation and/or nausea in the mid-chest region. As these symptoms escalate, you may experience severe discomfort and an negative impact on your quality of life.

If you are at least 21 years old and have not obtained good results with prescribed medication, you might be a good candidate for a highly effective laparoscopic procedure using the LINX® Reflux Management System.

There are several medicines that may help control acid build-up, but do not address the actual underlying problem. If you have been taking drugs like Prevacid®, Nexium®, Prilosec® but are still experiencing significant problems with GERD, we encourage you to make an appointment with Dr. Tyson Blatchford for evaluation. Many patients report dramatically improved quality of life, including the ability to eat foods they haven’t eaten in years!
