A new approach to acid reflux disease.

Omega PF™ is a simple and safe product implanted with a straight-forward laparoscopic procedure. The small Ω-shaped device is designed to prevent excessive acid from entering the esophagus while allowing much of the normal swallowing process to remain intact. It is designed to minimize dysphagia and side effects common to other GERD treatments.
