What is the LINX reflux management system? The LINX reflux management system is a new
but established treatment for GERD. It’s a minimally invasive surgical treatment that
allows people to get off proton-pump inhibitors that are typically used to treat heartburn. It is a series of titanium, magnetic beads.
They are placed around your swallow tube and prevents reflux of contents in your stomach
into your esophagus, thus alleviating symptoms such as heartburn, cough, hoarseness and such. The majority of patients—up to 90 percent—will
experience relief of symptoms after this procedure. To learn more about the LINX reflux management
system for the treatment of GERD or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Tsuda, call 702-671-5150.
