Am I a Good TIF Candidate?
The TIF procedure is most appropriate for those suffering from GERD who:
- Regularly experience troublesome symptoms of GERD
- No longer respond adequately or are dissatisfied with pharmaceutical therapies
- Are concerned about the adverse long-term effects of taking PPIs
- Are considering surgical intervention but are concerned about the complication rate, mortality and potential side effects (e.g. gas bloat, dysphagia, inability to vomit) of laparoscopic antireflux surgery
