TIF Procedure

GERD or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease is a serious condition that affects a large number of people and can ultimately lead to esophageal cancer. When not treated, GERD can cause debilitating pain including: difficulty swallowing, heartburn, serious cough, and difficulty sleeping and eating.

One of the most minimally invasive treatment procedures for GERD is TIF or Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication, a highly successful procedure that uses an implanted anti-reflux valve. This incisionless procedure uses a the anti-reflux valve to naturally reestablish a barrier to reflux.

How Does TIF Work

The TIF procedure rebuilds the antireflux valve at the gastroesophageal junction, naturally stopping food and liquids from moving back up the esophagus once ingested.The procedure is performed orally, which means no incisions are made. TIF treats the issues that cause GERD as opposed to solely treating the symptoms,which means you can live symptom free and reclaim your health.  

The Benefits of TIF

  • Reduce heartburn symptoms.
  • Reduces sore throat and chronic coughing.
  • Can reduce non-acidic symptoms such as GERD caused asthma.
  • Improve quality of life.
  • Improve quality of sleep.
