Understanding GORD

Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD), also known as GERD, is a chronic, often progressive condition resulting from a weak Lower Oesophageal Sphincter (LOS). When left untreated, serious complications can result, including: oesophagitis, stricture, Barrett's oesophagus, and Oesophageal cancer.

Treatment Options

Treatment options for people who suffer from GORD vary widely depending on the severity and symptoms of their disease, however, there are currently three primary means of treating GORD: lifestyle changes, medical therapy and surgical intervention. Always consult your physician when considering treatment options.

How Does the LINX® System Work?

The LINX® System is a small flexible band of interlinked titanium beads with magnetic cores. The magnetic attraction between the beads helps the LOS resist opening to gastric pressures, preventing reflux from the stomach into the oesophagus. Swallowing forces temporarily break the magnetic bond, allowing food and liquid to pass normally into the stomach. Magnetic attraction closes the LOS immediately after swallowing, restoring the body’s natural barrier to reflux.
