Service Highlight – Stretta

If you suffer from reflux you know just how much it can impact your quality of life. Maybe you have terrible bouts of heartburn that keep you from eating the foods you enjoy. You could be experiencing a burning sensation in your chest and throat. Maybe you are taking antacids or anti-reflux medication but you still suffer.

Your doctor may have diagnosed you with GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease. GERD is common, affecting 1 in 3 Americans.

“GERD is usually caused by a weakness in the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Essentially, it is a one-way valve that relaxes when we eat and swallow, then clamps back up when we are done. It can stop working for various reasons,” said Dr. Jeff Womble, general surgeon.

Memorial Regional Health is thrilled to offer a new solution for GERD that’s producing great results. It’s called Stretta. It’s a highly effective and minimally-invasive procedure that offers an alternative to invasive surgery or implants. Stretta Therapy uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to strengthen and improve the function of the LES to prevent regurgitation or reflux.

“Most people with reflux symptoms are a candidate for Stretta. It can mean ending symptoms and getting off medicines,” Womble said.
