Stretta

Stretta therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that significantly reduces GERD symptoms, allowing the majority of patients to eliminate or largely decrease use of PPIs. Stretta is an outpatient procedure per­formed in less than 60 minutes, allowing patients to return to normal activities the fol­lowing day. Stretta doesn’t require any incisions, stitches or implants.

How Stretta Works

The Stretta system delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to the muscle between the stomach and esophagus, which remodels and improves the muscle tissue, resulting in improved barrier function and fewer reflux events. Stretta treats the underlying problem that may cause GERD without surgery.

Stretta

RF energy is an energy waveform which is used in many medical specialties:

Cardiologists use RF to stop dangerous heart rhythms

Urologists use RF for treating prostate enlargement

Ear, nose, and throat specialists use RF to eliminate snoring and sleep apnea

RF is used in cosmetic procedures for body contouring, skin rejuvenation and tightening

Stretta is by far the most widely studied minimally invasive treatment option for GERD – and has been proven safe and effective in more than 34 clinical studies and 20,000 procedures. Studies show that patients experience significant and lasting symptom relief from 4-10 years, without the higher complication rates of surgery, or the higher costs.

Clinical trials evaluating the Stretta procedure show:

Up to 93% patient satisfaction

86% of patients remained off daily GERD medications at four years

Improved GERD symptom scores

Improved Quality of Life

Reduced acid exposure

Regression of Barretts Esophagus

An improvement in Extra-esophageal symptoms of GERD

Coughing, asthma, hoarseness, respiratory and laryngeal symptoms

A significant reduction in the amount of reflux episodes
