What is the LINX device?

The LINX device is miniature ring of interlinked titanium beads with a magnetic core that is placed around the gastroesophageal junction. The magnets within the device will then hold the esophagus in place to prevent stomach acid for entering the esophagus while allowing food to pass through to the stomach.

How is the LINX procedure performed?

The physician will enter your abdomen through small incisions. The stomach will be moved down to view the esophagus. The esophagus will me measured, and then fitted with the LINX device. The magnets will then hold the esophagus in place to prevent stomach acid for entering the esophagus while allowing food to pass through to the stomach.

How long will it take to recover from the LINX procedure?

You will most likely experience a decrease in your GERD symptoms by the next day. You are allowed, in fact encouraged, to eat regular food immediately after the LINX – a unique advantage over other procedures

LINX® RefluxManagement System Stop Reflux At Its Source!

The LINX Reflux Management System is a small, flexible band of magnets enclosed in titanium beads. The magnetic attraction between the beads helps keep the weak lower esophogeal sphincter closed to prevent reflux. Swallowing forces temporarily break the magnetic bond to allow food and liquid to pass into the stomach
