  • What is EndoCinch?

    Endoscopic suturing refers to a new medical therapy for the treatment of symptomatic Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).

    The medical name for the EndoCinch procedure is Endoluminal Gastroplication.

    The EndoCinchâ„¢ device, like a tiny sewing machine, is attached to the end of a standard, flexible endoscope. The EndoCinch suturing system allows the physician to place a suture (stitch) near the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Two stitches can be placed and tied together to create a pleat near the LES and treat symptomatic reflux.

    Performing the procedure has been shown to significantly improve symptoms and regurgitation while reducing or eliminating patients dependence on acid controlling medications.
