La PORTE – More than 20 million Americans suffer with daily heartburn or other symptoms of gastro reflux, and until recently, they faced a lifetime of daily medications and often incomplete resolution of symptoms, or the risk of invasive surgery, according to physicians at Northwest Health-La Porte.

Now patients have another option - the transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) procedure. Northwest Health is one of the only hospital systems in Northern Indiana offering the incisionless procedure, performed by general surgeons Dr. Adam Conn and Dr. Blake Hood at Northwest Health - La Porte.
