Hi all,

There is something called "STRETTA therapy"

According to their website (Google it as I am unable to post a link)

Studies show that Stretta resolves reflux symptoms and improves quality of life

Stretta reduces or eliminates medications and reduces acid exposure

A minimally invasive option that is less aggressive than invasive surgery and implants

More than 33 clinical studies all conclude Stretta is "safe and effective"

Stretta results are long-lasting, proven effective from 4-10 years

Treats the underlying cause of GERD not just the symptoms

Has anyone on here had STRETTA therapy - does it work?

Thanks,

    I did a bit of reading. This therapy sounds brand new and quite interesting. Thanks for posting. I contacted the company to see if they can provide any more information about where it can be performed in Europe. 

    Would also be interested to hear from people who did the therapy.

       I phoned the company last week - it can be done in London or Bristol - you cannot get it on NHS and it costs about £7,000. I would also like to hear from people who have had Stretta therapy.

      I will let you know. I am having mine 25th May. Then my Surgeon wants me on liquid only, for 3 weeks, even though it says 1 or 2 weeks on the internet. Following this, it will be 6 weeks of soft food. It is said, that there could be some pain for a few days after treatment. He said no tablets. The painkiller has to be liquid. He advised here in the UK, Calpol painkiller (liquid).  Are you in the uk ?
