ⓘ Transoral incisionless fundoplication

Transoral incisionless fundoplication is an endoscope treatment designed to relieve symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease. The TIF procedure, similar to Nissen fundoplication, alleviates GERD symptoms by wrapping a portion of the stomach around the esophagus.

The tif procedure, in contrast to laparoscopic fundoplication, does not require surgical incisions. Instead of a surgical device called the EsophyX is inserted into the mouth, passed through the throat and into the stomach. The endoscope is used to perform the procedure.

A minority of people who undergo the procedure fever also require surgery on the hiatal hernia surgery. The procedure is performed when a person is under General anesthesia and is usually an outpatient procedure.
