What is the Stretta procedure?
The Stretta procedure is a noninvasive, endoscopic treatment of acid reflux in which radiofrequency energy is applied to the gastroesophageal junction. In principle, controlled injury causes thickening of the lower esophageal sphincter, limiting free reflux of gastric contents. It may also reduce the feeling of heartburn that we get with acid reflux and the loosening of our natural antireflux mechanism.
Who is a candidate for the Stretta procedure?
Do you suffer from acid reflux?
Are you tired of taking daily medications for acid reflux?
Are you tired of the need to take more acid reflux medications?
Are you worried about the complications associated with acid reflux medications?
Are you concerned about the high costs of acid reflux medications?
If so, then Stretta may be right for you. Stretta is an option for patients that have failed or are intolerant of drug therapy, offering an alternative to invasive surgery or implants.
