What is GERD?

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is when the valve that keeps your stomach contents from flowing up into your esophagus does not close properly.

  • Causes damage to the esophagus
  • Chronic symptoms can be very painful—even debilitating
  • A progressive disease that does not resolve itself over time
  • May lead to Barrett’s esophagus or esophageal cancer

GERD Can Mean More Than Just Heartburn

GERD can lead to short-term bothersome symptoms, which can vary from mild or moderate to severe depending on the person.

  • Up to 60% of patients have symptoms in the throat without any significant heartburn as a symptom
  • 75% of patients with frequent GERD symptoms have them at night
  • 62% of patients with obstructive sleep apnea also have GERD

The TIF® Procedure – Makes Every Body Happy

The Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) Procedure is an incision-free option without all the negative side-effects of other surgical options. The TIF Procedure is performed through the mouth to restore the esophagus to its normal state, meaning it often allows for a short recovery time of less than one week!

This solution is safe and effective, and has a proven track record of transforming lives. An astounding 81% of patients are off daily PPI’s post TIF Procedure and 84% show that their esophagitis has healed or improved one grade. Quality of life scores have also shown significant improvement, so talk to our doctors today to see if the TIF Procedure is right for you.
