Our 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.
This is done under twilight sedation and with a thin camera tube. Stretta delivers radio-frequency (RF) energy to the muscle of the lower esophagus and upper stomach thereby strengthening these areas to prevent acid reflux. The esophageal sphincter is heated up and the valve relaxes back to the proper form.
Stretta is considered to be an effective solution to acid reflux with scientific reports of 70-80% success rates in selected cases. Most people notice significant improvements in their symptoms immediately after this Stretta.
Please note that acid reflux is a chronic problem. GSC does not promise a cure and does not give any warranty as to result of any treatment.
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.
You will most likely be able to return to your daily activities a day after the procedure.
Stretta is a safe treatment. In rare cases, minor injury to the esophagus and stomach have been reported. With more than 10,000 procedures done worldwide, no deaths or major complications have been reported.
No…you will be under sedation, so you will not feel any pain during the procedure.
