New Treatment for Severe HeartburnLinx

Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD), is a chronic, often progressive condition resulting from a weak Lower Oesophageal Sphincter (LOS). The LOS is a ring of muscle at the junction of the oesophagus and stomach that prevents acid or bile rising back up the oesophagus from the stomach. In people with GORD, the LOS is weak, allowing acid and bile to flow back or ‘reflux’ from the stomach into the oesophagus.
