What is GERD?

GERD is a chronic condition where stomach contents “reflux” up from the stomach into the esophagus through the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Normally, the LES acts as a one-way valve, enabling food to pass down into the stomach but not up into the esophagus. When the LES fails to function properly, patients may experience symptoms of GERD.

Stretta therapy is an outpatient procedure performed in 60 minutes or less. Patients generally return to normal activities the following day. The Stretta system delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to the LES, which regenerates the muscle tissue, resulting in improved function and fewer of the random relaxations that cause GERD symptoms.
