Trudie Goers, MD, laparoendoscopic and gastrointestinal surgeon with The Surgical Clinic, PLLC located at TriStar Centennial Medical Center has implanted the LINX® Reflux Management System device via the first minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure of its kind in Tennessee, on Thursday, July 14. The new device is designed to help patients who have severe acid reflux.

"Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is very common and the LINX® Relux Management System is a great device is a great option for patients who are unable to manage their GERD with short-course antacid medications, said Trudie Goers, MD, laparoendoscopic and gastrointestinal surgeon. Typically, these medications are not meant to be taken for long periods of time and can even have negative side effects. With the LINX procedure, patients are able to eat soft food right after surgery and get back to life and work the next week. It is exciting to introduce this innovative and game-changing procedure here in Tennessee."

According to Torax® Medical, Inc., makers of the LINX® Reflux Management System, approximately seven million people in the United States have some symptoms of GERD, a chronic, often progressive disease resulting from a weak lower esophageal sphincter that allows harmful gastric fluid to reflux into the esophagus. Symptoms of GERD include heartburn, regurgitation, cough, and chest pain. Acid suppression drugs, such as Prevacid®, Nexium®, and Prilosec®, affect gastric acid production but do not repair the sphincter defect and allow continued reflux. GERD can progress to a pre-cancerous condition known as Barrett's esophagus, affect the teeth, sinuses and and can possibly lead to esophageal cancer. In addition, new studies have shown dangers in using acid suppression drugs over time.

"At TriStar Centennial, we are always looking to support our physicians in providing patients with the latest advancements in treatment options," said Heather J. Rohan, President and CEO of TriStar Centennial Medical Center. "We are especially proud to be the first in Tennessee to offer this revolutionary and life altering solution to patients suffering from the effects of severe acid reflux."
