"The doctors and staff have always treated myself and my family with great compassion and has always answered any of my questions to where I could make wise choices about my care."

—From Patient Survey

It's time to win the battle against reflux.

 

 

Solve reflux, for good.

Reflux sufferers, meet LINX® — a revolutionary solution for reflux. It’s a simple device with life-changing potential. LINX is intended for patients diagnosed with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) as defined by abnormal pH testing, and who are seeking an alternative to continuous acid suppression therapy. Continue on to learn more about this small device with big results.

Restore, don't reconstruct.

Unlike other procedures to treat reflux, LINX is implanted around the outside of the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) and requires no alteration to the stomach.

Listen to what your body is telling you.

It’s time to start your journey and take back control. LINX is intended for patients diagnosed with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) as defined by abnormal pH testing, and who are seeking an alternative to continuous acid suppression therapy. Are you concerned with a lifetime of medication, pharmacy visits and potential side effects? If this sounds like you, talk to your doctor, it may be time for LINX.

 

How LINX Works

GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) is caused by a weak muscle called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) that allows acid and bile to flow back from the stomach into the esophagus, creating pain and may cause damage to the lining of the esophagus.

LinX is a flexible ring of small magnets placed around the LES during a minimally invasive procedure. The strength of the magnets helps keep the weak LES closed to provent reflux.

When you swallow, LINX opens temporarily to allow food and liquid to pass into the stomach.
