The Stretta Procedure

Heartburn is a burning sensation behind the breast bone when stomach contents reflux backward into the esophagus (gastroesophageal reflux, GER). GER occurs in 10 percent to 48 percent of the U.S. population. Untreated GER has potentially severe complications including erosive esophagitis, ulcer disease, stricture and Barrett’s esophagus with its increased risk for the development of esophageal cancer.
