Reflux Therapy: It’s not one size fits all


If you struggle with reflux symptoms, ask your doctor about Restech testing before determining a treatment pathway. Our diagnostic tool provides insightful data to help your doctor design the most targeted, effective treatment for YOU.

Some patients may greatly benefit from Stretta therapy, our non-surgical procedure that significantly reduces reflux symptoms by strengthening your natural reflux barrier, the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). A majority of patients are able to reduce or stop taking medications completely.*

The right test is critical—

Especially for those with "Silent Reflux,"
who may be experiencing:

  • Chronic cough
  • Chronic hoarseness
  • Sensation of lump in the throat
  • Sleep disordered breathing
  • Throat clearing
  • Chronic sore throat

"Control of the symptoms is not enough. Control of the reflux is key"

— Jeffrey Hagan, MD

Studies show the diagnosis of LPR cannot be reliably made on the basis of symptoms alone, with no significant difference in presenting symptoms, symptom duration, or severity scores in the patients that had negative vs. positive pharyngeal pH studies.

Using the results from our simple diagnostic test, your doctor can confidently recommend the most appropriate, targeted treatment plan to address your reflux condition. Equally important, avoid reflux treatment if you do not have reflux!

30% Don't Get Relief from Medication, Many don't want Surgery

An estimated 30% of reflux patients do not get relief from medication. Many have concerns about taking anti-reflux medications long-term and also want to avoid surgery. What is the alternative solution?

Meet Stretta. Learn about our reflux solutions and ask your doctor whether Restech’s Dx-pH test and Stretta are right for you.

 Stretta therapy may be right for you if:

  • Medications are not adequately addressing your symptoms

  • You have had anti-reflux or bariatric surgery yet still have reflux
