I posted on this some two odd years ago - low and behold. Procedure passed by the FDA. Excellent news for anyone suffering from GERD/Reflux disease.

The procedure is simplistic itself. Totally non-invasive. Just a ring of titanium beads passed around the top of the stomach. Then voila. Yea.

Delighted to see this procedure has passed muster. Will be a boon for all those with GERD/reflux problems. yes

Oh that is such good news, what a brilliant solution!


Iritis first diagnosed in 1991, presently recurrent and steroid resistant.
Tested HLA B27 positive in 1996.
AS diagnosed October of 2011.

Putting most of my eggs in the NSD and exercise basket, using only TENS, massage, heat and ice, and NSAIDS (sparingly) for pain. Drops for iritis as flare necessitates. Looking back I feel I would have been diagnosed with AS years ago, if I had found a rheumy earlier than 2011.

It is a 'real' breakthrough. Hope those with acid reflux will check this out - a great solution for a vile problem. Those antacids are not good, eventually can lead to bad side effects.
