LINX Reflux Management System for Treatment of GERD

United Surgical Associates of Kansas City recommends the LINX Reflux Management System for treatment of GERD. Medications for GERD are designed to control or suppress acid production in the stomach. They DO NOT address the cause of GERD and do not prevent reflux.

GERD can lead to potentially serious complications, including:

  • Esophagitis (Inflammation, irritation, or swelling of the esophagus)
  • Stricture (Narrowing of the esophagus)
  • Barrett’s Esophagus (Pre-cancerous changes to the esophagus)
  • Esophageal Cancer

To request more information about your GERD treatment options please enter your information below and a representative from our clinic will contact you shortly.


LINX® augments the weak Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) to help prevent reflux

LINX: Stop GERD at its source

LINX system closed
LINX is a flexible ring of small magnets placed around the LES during a minimally invasive procedure. The strength of the magnets helps keep the weak LES closed to prevent reflux.
LINX system food
When you swallow, LINX opens temporarily to allow food and liquid to pass into the stomach.

The LINX Advantage

  • Requires no alteration to the stomach
  • Reduces gas and bloating
  • Preserves the ability to belch and vomit
  • Patients typically go home within 24 hours and resume a normal diet
