Tue, Jan 15 7:19pm · Linx procedure in Digestive Health

The surgery was a success. I haven’t had heartburn or acid reflux since. Early on I had to take my time eating or food could get stuck a bit down near the opening to the stomach but no longer gives me much trouble unless I eat soft white bread, hot dog buns, or eat too fast. Long periods go without any problem at all. I will be having a repeat esophagram and BRAVO monitor at the year anniversary to assess success further, I went to USC to have the best doctor I could find, Dr. Lipham. I wanted someone who had done many, many LINX procedures. I didn’t want to have it done in LV.

I also got off of PPIs by taking Zantac and Tums combined. However, I did have a hiatal hernia repaired and a LINX Augmentation Procedure in September 2018 and now take nothing, no meds of any kind. No heartburn, no nausea, no pain. It was a godsend for me.

Thu, Jan 10 9:29am · Operation for GERD (23 years old) in Digestive Health

I had a hiatal hernia repair (4 cm) and the LINX Augmentation done in September 2018. I had acid reflux over 80 times a day.

Immediately after the surgery (laparoscopic) I no longer had heartburn, no pain, and no nausea. I had it done at USC in L. A. By Dr. Lipham. I would highly recommend it if you are a good candidate and everything you expressed seems like you may be.

I only spoke with someone over the phone, giving my information. I received a letter say8ng they thought I was getting adequate treatment with my gastro. Also, they prioritized patients because of too few doctors. I didn’t take no for answer and sought an experienced practitioner elsewhere.
