LINX is a medical device used in the treatment of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). It is a small, flexible ring of magnets that is surgically implanted around the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) to help prevent stomach acid from flowing back into the esophagus. The LINX device helps restore the natural barrier between the esophagus and stomach, reducing the symptoms of GERD such as heartburn and regurgitation. The procedure is minimally invasive and typically performed with a laparoscopic approach.
