Transoral Incisioless Fundoplication – TIF Surgical Procedure

The TIF procedure is effective. A first Randomized Clinical Trial, comparing TIF vs PPI’s already confirmed it. A second Randomized Clinical Trial comparing TIF vs SHAM & PPI’s will confirm it soon. More than 15,000 patients were already treted with this technique worldwide. Enjoy the video! Sincerely, Adrian Lobontiu, MD, FACS Keyword(s): EndoGastric Solutions, TIF2
