A simple device with life-changing potential
Up to 1 in 5 U.S. adults suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Americans suffering from GERD now have a safe and effective treatment alternative.
Current Treatments: Patients need an alternative.
Medications for GERD are designed to control or suppress acid production in the stomach. They do not address the cause of GERD, a weak sphincter muscle, and can’t prevent reflux. Approximately 40% of GERD sufferers continue to suffer symptoms while taking medications for GERD.2 LINX is a revolutionary solution for GERD proven to eliminate dependence on medication and improve quality of life.
Actual size. Actual benefits are immeasurable.
5-Year results of a landmark study confirm LINX procedure as a beneficial treatment for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease:3
- 85% of patients remained free from dependence on daily GERD medication.
- Bothersome regurgitation, was eliminated in 99% of patients.
- Bothersome heartburn, was significantly reduced from 89% at baseline to 11.9%.
- Patients reported a significant improvement in their quality of life.
Simply designed to be simple.
LINX is easy to understand and love because it is simple. LINX is a small, flexible ring of magnets that opens to allow food and liquid down, then closes to prevent stomach contents from moving up. Simple as that.
LINX is implanted using a minimally invasive procedure and patients generally go home within one day.
