I am a candidate for a LYNX procedure. I have one more test and that is an Esophogram. If the esophagus had enough elasticity I will be scheduled for the LYNX procedure. The reason I even considered this procedure is because I want to stop taking PPIs. I have been taking them for 6 years. I would like to speak to people who have had the LYNX procedure and get their viewpoint on it.

You are a candidate for a procedure when both medicine to reduce reflux and diet no longer work. An endoscopy will show if scarring occurred in the escophugus due to acid reflux.

Feb 27, 2017 · Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LRP) - severity and outlook? in Digestive Health

I have been diagnosed, several years ago, with LPR. I am currently taking 40 MG Omeprozole twice a day and 300 mg of Randitinine and still experiencing reflux. My ENT and my GI doctors said I was a candidate for the LINX Procedure since the medicine, high doses, is not stopping the reflux. I’m also concerned about the side effects the medicine can have on my body. How many procedures has the Mayo Clinic done with the LINX Procedure?
