Debate on Reflux Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons

The 14th Bill Owen Symposium took place at the Royal College of Surgeons, London on Friday the 4th of April 2014. This proved to be an outstanding event, with international experts  discussing new advances and treatments in oesophago-gastric disease.

A lively debate on the "Best Surgery for Reflux Disease" generated much interest. Professor Steven Attwood from Newcastle presented the case for Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication, and Mr. Saj Wajed from Exeter countered this with the argument for the novel LINX reflux management system.

Although Mr. Wajed  agreed that Nissen Fundoplication was a good operation for reflux disease ,  an operation which he frequently performs, he felt that the LINX system offers a less invasive option, with less side effects and most importantly is proving to be a more attractive option for many sufferers of this condition.
