Good thing there's a better solution for heartburn.
You don't have to live with heartburn and a lifetime of medication
Join thousands who have received relief from chronic acid reflux with the incisionless* TIF procedure, rebuilding the valve between your esophagus and stomach, instead of simply treating your symptoms with medications.
We’re grateful to have one of the country’s leading TIF surgeons right here in Northeast Kansas—Dr. Roderick Warren. Dr. Warren practices in both our Leavenworth and Atchison locations, and has performed over one hundred procedures since 2017.
Dr. Warren is one of the leading surgeons in the country to perform the TIF procedure for the treatment of GERD.
What is TIF?
TIF is an incisionless* surgical solution for acid reflux.
TIF is an acronym for Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication.
- The surgery is performed through the mouth.
- Abdominal incisions are not required unless additional treatments are being included in the procedure, such as repairing a hernia.
- TIF reconstructs the valve between the esophagus and the stomach to prevent reflux.
*Dr. Warren often performs this procedure in conjunction with minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery to repair a hiatal hernia.
TIF delivers GERD relief
Gastroesophageal reflux occurs when contents in your stomach flow back into your esophagus because the valve between the two stops working properly. Patients diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux dieasese (GERD) are often treated with medications like like Prilosec® and Nexium®, but these won’t cure reflux. Many people find that they are dependent on taking increased doses multiple times per day to get symptom relief.
Repairing the valve
TIF rebuilds the valve between your esophagus and your stomach, which keeps your stomach acids from flowing the wrong direction.
Why Dr. Warren?
General surgeons are an excellent choice of TIF provider.
Dr. Warren is a Board Certified General Surgeon with over 20 years of experience and one of the leading TIF surgeons in the country. Instead of seeing multiple doctors for your pre-operative work and actual TIF procedure, you can see Dr. Warren for everything from the initial visit through your post-procedure follow up.
