Scott & White Hospital - Round Rock first in Central Texas, one of few nationally to perform breakthrough procedure for acid reflux
Date:4/11/2013

d Reflux Center (HARC) at Scott & White – Round Rock.  "Signs of reflux disease include heartburn, regurgitation, and acid reflux, resulting in chronic pain and severe injury to the esophagus," said Dr. Lau. "This device is implanted in the lower esophageal sphincter. A magnetic beaded bracelet is placed around the esophagus where it joins the stomach.  It opens and closes with normal swallowing, but provides enough pressure to prevent acid reflux," added Dr. Buckley.

A study published in the February edition of the New England Journal of Medicine reported that 93 percent of patients that underwent the LINX procedure reported a significant decrease in the need for medication with 100 percent reporting the elimination of severe regurgitation.

"This new advancement revolutionizes the surgical treatment of reflux disease," said Dr. Buckley. "I believe that we will improve the overall quality of life for our patients suffering from GERD through this less invasive surgical option."

For more information on the Heartburn and Acid Reflux Center at Scott & White Healthcare– Round Rock, visit heartburn.sw.org or call 512-509-GERD. The HARC offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, integrated approach for the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux, combining skilled physicians and the latest technology to provide effective solutions for the patient.
