Treatment for GERD

Specific treatment for GERD will be determined by a physician based on age, overall health, and medical history, extent of the condition, tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies, and expectations for the course of the condition.

We offer transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF). The TIF procedure tightens the connection between the esophagus and stomach and prevents stomach acid from going into the esophagus. It is done using an endoscope from inside the body - there is no cutting. After TIF, most patients experience immediate relief and many no longer need anti-reflux medications.

Not all GERD patients may be candidates for the TIF procedure. Thorough evaluation by a gastroenterology specialist is necessary.

GERD Patient Success Stories

  • "Methodist is great and Dr. Linder is outstanding. Before seeing Dr. Linder, every time I would eat, there was heartburn. I tried over-the-counter acid medicine, and it did not work. After taking medication and adopting a well-balanced diet with low sodium, my life has returned to normal. I cannot praise Methodist, Dr. Linder, and his professional staff enough. I highly recommend Methodist and Dr. Linder to anyone who has gastrointestinal symptoms."

    "I would have this burning sensation in my chest after I ate. It usually occurred when I ate fatty foods, so I didn't pay much attention to it until it got worse. I became so ill, I lost a lot of weight in only three days. I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep, and I didn't have any energy. Most of the physicians I saw recommended antacid, which wasn't working. It wasn't until I met Dr. Memon that I began to recover. I can go wherever I want and do anything I want to do with my grandkids. I'm enjoying my life again."
