Relief from Heartburn, Reflux & GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease)
Approximately nine million U.S. adults have serious, daily symptoms related to GERD. The most common symptoms are heartburn and regurgitation. However, this condition can lead to more severe complications of ulceration and scar tissue build up in one’s esophagus, increasing any risk of esophagus cancer.
The Stretta Procedure is an endoscopically-guided outpatient treatment, performed in an endoscopy unit (median procedure time 60 mins.). A certified endoscopist delivers controlled radiofrequency energy to the muscle of the Gastroesophageal junction improving its barrier function and the symptoms of GERD. Patients go home that day, and most return to normal activities the following day.
