Millions of Americans suffering from GERD now have a new, safe and effective treatment alternative. CHI Health offers a minimally invasive procedure that typically takes less than one hour and is designed to help stop GERD at its source.
How It Works
GERD is a caused by a mechanical defect and requires a mechanical solution. This system is a small, flexible band of magnets enclosed in titanium beads. The beads are connected by titanium wires. It is implanted around the weak esophageal sphincter, just above the stomach. The magnetic attraction between the beads keeps the weak esophageal sphincter closed to help prevent reflux. Swallowing forces the beads to separate temporarily to allow food and liquid to pass into the stomach. This system is implanted laparoscopically in a minimally invasive procedure that typically takes less than one hour. Patients generally go home within one day.
