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 per ­formed in less than 60 minutes, allowing patients to return to normal activities the fol ­lowing 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.

Reflux - weak muscle allows stomach contents to reflux into esophagus Reflux – weak muscle allows stomach contents to reflux into esophagus
Stretta Therapy - treats muscle with radiofrequency energyStretta Therapy – treats muscle with radiofrequency energy
Post-Stretta - thicker muscle prevents refluxPost-Stretta – thicker muscle prevents reflux

 

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
