Description

Find Relief from Acid Reflux and Heartburn

LINX Reflux Management System

Acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic, often progressive condition that affects one in five adults in the U.S. While many men and women manage their symptoms with medications and lifestyle changes, approximately 40 percent of suffers are still not finding the relief they need. The good news is that there is a new minimally-invasive procedure, utilizing the LINX® Reflux Management System, which is designed to alleviate symptoms and strengthen the lower esophageal sphincter.

The LINX Reflux Management System is a flexible quarter-sized implantable device which consists of a series of magnetic titanium beads used to strengthen the lower esophageal sphincter.
