Dr. Michael Sedrak, and ABSAMC are pleased to provide state-of-the-art care to patients suffering from chronic acid reflux, also known as GERD, or gastroesophageal disease.
Our goal is to provide every patient with a treatment therapy designed to resolve the root cause of their diseae. No more heartburm, no more pills, and with no scars, letting you get back to living! Dr. Sedrak has extensive surgical experience and performs a range of advanced procedures, including transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) surgery for resolving the anatomic cause of chronic GERD.
For people who suffer from moderate to severe GERD who no longer respond satisfactorily to GERD medications, surgical intervention may be warranted to correct the anatomical cause of the disease, an anatomical defect with the gastroesophageal valve. In addition to conventional GERD surgery, we also offer the latest surgical treatment option, the completely incisionless procedure called TIF (Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication).
Procedure is performed through the mouth, rather than through an abdominal incision. Typically lasting no more than 50-60 minutes, the procedure is performed under general anesthesia and reconstructs the antireflux barrier to restore the competency of the gastroesophageal junction. Most patients can go home the next day and return to work within a few days.
TIF (transoral incisionless fundoplication) is the latest treatment for safely and effectively treating chronic acid reflux disease, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). A completely incisionless procedure, TIF reconstructs the antireflux barrier to provide a solution to the anatomical root cause of GERD. The procedure is for patients who are dissatisfied with current pharmaceutical therapies or are concerned about the long-term effects of daily use of reflux medications.
