LINX® System

People suffering from GERD symptoms have medication options available to them. However, over time many patients experience a loss of efficacy in medication, and medications that used to control their symptoms no longer work well. In these cases, a surgical solution can be the best option to provide relief from painful and damaging symptoms. The LINX® system for GERD surgery is less invasive and more effective than traditional procedures.

How Does LINX Work?

LINX is a minimally invasive and effective treatment for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, or GERD. The LINX system works by utilizing a ring of flexible magnets that opens when food or liquids are swallowed and closes once the food and liquid move safely through the LES and into the stomach. Instead of attempting to treat GERD symptoms with medications that are often ineffective, the LINX System addresses the cause of GERD by preventing reflux. TLC Surgery’s team of experienced surgeons and professional staff are dedicated to helping those suffering from chronic acid reflux or GERD. Get your life back on track and stop suffering from the often debilitating symptoms of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease today.
