Incisionless Reflux Surgery (TIF)

Treating GERD

Chronic acid reflux affects millions of Americans. If you have heartburn or reflux twice a week or more, you may have gastroesophageal reflux disease, commonly known as GERD. Before now, treatments for GERD were limited to medications and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), neither of which provided a long term solution to reflux.

University Health now offers the most advanced, incisionless procedure for safely and effectively treating GERD, known as TIF (transoral incisionless fundoplication). This quick procedure is performed through the mouth, instead of through a stomach incision, and allows most patients to return to work within a few days.

Research shows 93% of patients remain free of their heartburn and 79% off their daily PPIs at two years after the TIF procedure.
