For many people, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs often and causes unpleasant symptoms, including frequent heartburn. Stanford offers the LINX® system, a special magnetic device that your doctor places around the outside of your esophagus. The device offers long-term symptom management for people living with GERD.
We are one of a handful of health care facilities in the San Francisco Bay Area offering treatment with the LINX® reflux management system. Our doctors use a minimally invasive procedure to implant the device, which helps prevent GERD while allowing you to eat and drink as you normally do.
