The Heartburn Solutions Center at Emory Decatur Hospital and Emory Hillandale Hospital uses an integrated approach for the treatment of GERD and its symptoms. In addition to offering effective lifestyle modification and medication options, our Center offers the best surgical GERD treatment solutions available. Services include the LINX procedure and Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication, as well as other surgical and non-surgical options to help with the treatment of chronic heartburn, acid reflux and GERD.
Our Heartburn Solutions Center was selected as one of the few initial centers nationally to offer the LINX REFLUX Management System for the treatment of GERD and acid reflux. Patients appreciate the surgical expertise and compassionate care of our Center’s staff, as well as the pampering concierge service for long-term management of good health. Watch the brief video below as one patient tells about his positive experience with the LINX procedure and how it changed his life. Click here to read about another patient's success story.
The most common reason our surgical GERD treatments are chosen by our patients is because medications fail to relieve acid reflux symptoms to their satisfaction. Some other reasons may be the inconvenience and cost of taking daily medications, the desirability to actually stop the reflux (which medications cannot do) or the drug side effects. If you would like to know how the Linx procedure works, watch this short video.
The staff at the Emory Decatur Hospital Heartburn Solutions Center can inform you about the pros and cons of each procedure as you evaluate the surgical alternatives. Call 404.501.RFLX (7359) for more information.
