TIF stands for “transoral incisionless fundoplication,” an innovative, no-incision, no-pills and no-scar treatment for acid reflux, or gastroesophageal reflux disease, GERD for short.
GERD is that uncomfortable, burning sensation in the throat or chest that lasts a few minutes or hangs on for hours. According to clinical studies, about 10% of Americans experience these symptoms several times a week. This is not normal. Untreated, it can lead to more serious health problems.
