The TIF® Procedure

The minimally-invasive TIF 2.0 procedure (Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication) is the only solution that effectively treats reflux without incisions or metal implants. TIF uses your own stomach tissue; it is designed to reposition and reconstruct a durable anti-reflux valve while also tightening the lower esophageal sphincter to restore the body’s natural protection against reflux. It is performed endoscopically through the mouth, meaning there are no incisions necessary.

TIF patients often experience a faster recovery since there is no internal cutting, and clinical studies demonstrate they rarely experience long-term side effects commonly associated with traditional anti-reflux surgery such as trouble swallowing (dysphagia), gas bloat syndrome and increased flatulence.

To date, the TIF 2.0 procedure has been performed in more than 27,000 patients worldwide. Due to the unique approach of the TIF 2.0 procedure, most patients return to work and normal activities within a few days after the procedure, allowing them to get back to life sooner, free of the distraction and discomfort of GERD.
