LINX Device for GERD and Acid Relux Relief

Hoag is one of only a few centers in California offering the revolutionary LINX Reflux Management System, an FDA-approved device that treats Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and relieves acid reflux symptoms, such as heart burn, regurgitation and nausea. Leading the program is John Lipham, M.D., who has over five years of experiences with the LINX system and is one of the first surgeons in California approved to implant the LINX device.

LINX patients, compared to patients who undergo traditional GERD surgical procedures, enjoy shorter hospital stays, reduced reliance on GERD medications, faster recovery times, and the ability to resume a normal diet after surgery.
