How LINX Stops GERD

LINX supports valve function between the stomach and the esophagus, limiting or stopping acid reflux. The LINX system is a biocompatible, flexible ring composed of small magnets encased in titanium beads.  Each of the beads is connected to the others by independent titanium wires. The LINX device allows for dynamic opening and closing of the esophagus to digestive enhance function and prevent GERD symptoms. 

The LINX system is placed around the esophagus, just above the stomach, through a minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery lasting about an hour. General anesthesia is used is for the LINX procedure, and details about the best options for your care should be discussed with your surgeon.
