Does it feel like you’ve tried every solution out there for heartburn and acid reflux, but to no avail? Are you taking expensive medication like Prilosec, Nexium, or Prevacid that seems to be getting less and less effective? Finally, for patients with Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), there is a safe, effective, non-invasive surgical solution—EsophyX. Our board-certified bariatric surgeon Dr. Shyam Dahiya is proud to offer EsophyX for patients with GERD in Los Angeles.
EsophyX for Relief from GERD Heartburn and Acid Reflux
If you are experiencing heartburn twice a week or more, and you aren’t satisfied with the effectiveness or cost of heartburn medication, you may be a candidate for surgical acid reflux relief with EsophyX. Dr. Dahiya uses the EsophyX device to perform a procedure called TIF (Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication). TIF reconstructs and tightens your body’s natural barriers to acid reflux, keeping painful stomach acid out of your esophagus.
After years of suffering with GERD acid reflux, you might think that it would take some major, invasive surgery with a long recovery time to actually fix the root cause of acid reflux. Actually, the high-tech EsophyX device allows Dr. Dahiya to perform the TIF procedure without a single incision.
Instead, EsophyX is lowered to your stomach endoscopically through the mouth. State-of-the-art video cameras and advanced surgical tools in the EsophyX device allow Dr. Dahiya to solve your acid reflux problem through fiber optic connections.
This non-invasive approach means minimal recovery time before you can go home, usually the next day. Within a few days, you can be back at your job and enjoy your normal activities free from the pain of heartburn and acid reflux.
