Linx Device for Acid Reflux

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.

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.
