Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease can be an unpleasant condition which can affect people in different ways. When it is not well controlled with medications, or where long-term medications are not a viable option, Stretta offers an alternative other than surgery. Stretta is a unique and non-surgical outpatient procedure that takes about an hour, with patients returning to normal activities within a few days.
If you are among the 30 percent of reflux patients whose symptoms are not well controlled by medications, or you are concerned about the potential side effects of long-term drug treatment and surgery seems too aggressive, then Mr Allenby-Smith can talk you through the benefits of Stretta.
Unfortunately, Stretta is not available on the NHS currently although most insurance companies will cover the cost or the Harbour Hospital can provide a cost for patients funding treatment themselves.
