Just read about this procedure. It might be old news but it's new to me and I'm so glad to know about it.

"Performed with the patient under general anesthesia, the EsophyX device is introduced into the body transorally (through the patient's mouth) and advanced into the esophagus under visualization of a small video camera inserted down the central shaft of the device. The EsophyX device is then used to form and fasten several tissue folds, or "plications," to create a robust antireflux valve at the gastroesophageal junction."

Since I haven't seen any post regarding it, I'd like to mention it and if someone has had it, please reply.

This might be an option for me since I'm fearful due to the mesh in my tummy.

God bless,
