LINX® Reflux Management System

LINX: A Revolutionary Solution for GERD

Dr. Jay Salimath is the only surgeon in downstate Illinois to provide the LINX Reflux Management System.

The LINX Advantage

  • Requires no alteration to the stomach

  • Reduces gas and bloating

  • Preserves the ability to belch and vomit

  • Patients typically go home within 24 hours and resume a normal diet

How LINX Works

LINX 1

GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) is caused by a weak muscle called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) that allows acid and bile to flow back from the stomach into the esophagus, creating pain and often causing damage to the lining of the esophagus.

LINX 2

LINX is a flexible ring of small magnets placed around the LES during a minimally invasive procedure.  The strength of the magnets helps keep the weak LES closed to prevent reflux.

LINX 3

When you swallow, LINX opens temporarily to allow food and liquid to pass into the stomach.
