Advanced Surgical Options Benefit You
LINX for Treatment of Reflux
LINX is small device implanted around the esophagus, the tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach. It enables a valve in the esophagus to open for food to pass to the stomach, then closes it to prevent food, stomach acid or bile from flowing back up.
The LINX ring is about the size of a quarter. The strength of the magnets holds the ring gently snug around the esophagus to prevent reflux. During swallowing, the beads separate temporarily, opening the valve to the stomach. It is implanted in a minimally invasive procedure that takes approximately an hour, called a Magnetic Sphincter Augmentation. LINX is designed to be a lifelong implant.
The LINX procedure can help anyone who has basic reflux as long as they don’t also suffer from other dysfunction of the esophagus and don’t have a large stomach hernia.
