In addition to lifestyle modifications, proton pump inhibitors are considered to be the first-line of defense against acid reflux. However, in some cases, PPIs are unable to properly control symptoms and achieve relief. So, what if proton pump inhibitors don’t work?
Uncontrolled acid reflux can cause a host of uncomfortable symptoms, including a burning sensation in your chest, difficulty swallowing, chest pain, regurgitation of food or liquid, and the sensation of a lump in your throat. When these symptoms are poorly controlled by medications and lifestyle modifications, surgery may be the most effective course of treatment.
If you are suffering from GERD and not getting the relief you need, LINX surgery might be the procedure that finally helps you.
