Incisionless GERD Surgery
Surgical Solution to Reflux
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) –– often referred to simply as reflux –– is thought to affect more than 35% of Americans. The team at Mercy Health Muskegon is one of the first in the area that may be able to offer you a long-term, minimally-invasive solution to troublesome GERD symptoms.
EsophyX TIF (transoral incisionless fundoplication) is a new and completely incisionless procedure that reconstructs the antireflux barrier, providing a permanent solution to the anatomical cause of GERD.
Most patients who undergo the EsophyX TIF procedure are either dissatisfied with current pharmaceutical therapies, or are concerned about the long-term effects of using these therapies daily. And while conventional surgery is an effective solution to GERD, patients usually have a longer healing time than they do with the EsophyX TIF, making it the best procedural choice for GERD sufferers.
