Our practice is unique because we specialise in the treatment of reflux and its related symptoms. Unlike other providers we do not have the distraction of other diseases and treatments, so all of our time is focused on helping reflux patients to understand their symptoms and then to treat them. This specialism contributes to the quality of our outcomes which are comparable to the best centres anywhere in the world.
Although RefluxUK is still relatively young, we have grown quickly and, cumulatively, our clinical team has over 100 years experience of treating reflux. Because we’ve seen and spoken to so many patients, we are very familiar with the frustrations that some describe. Too often that they have spent sometimes years trying unsuccessfully to get a proper diagnosis for the symptoms they are experiencing. Our mission is to provide you with a definitive diagnosis and the effective treatment you are seeking. We do this in several ways.
Firstly, we work with the best specialists who really are experts in the treatment of reflux. We make use of the best and most modern diagnostic technologies in order to isolate the cause of the particular symptoms you are experiencing. We interpret those diagnostic results using our multi-disciplinary team approach. This is central to our success. It brings together our reflux experts from different disciplines to review difficult cases. This approach helps us deliver accurate diagnoses and informs our decision on the best treatment option.
Because we’ve been specialising in treating people with reflux symptoms we’ve seen literally thousands of patients. This has helped us design the best pathways and to gain enormous experience not only in diagnosing and treating typical reflux disease but also other associated conditions such as LPR and SIBO. For instance, we have performed more LINX® operations than any other service or hospital in the UK and we believe this helps us achieve the best outcomes for patients looking for this treatment option. Not surprisingly, there are large volumes of scientific studies which have shown that centres and surgeons that treat high volumes of patients tend to achieve the best outcomes.
Throughout your relationship with us we will do our very best to respect and treat you as an individual and we will make it our business to help you get the diagnosis and treatment you are seeking. If you’re simply looking for the best specialist, the most rapid diagnosis or perhaps you are tired of being referred from doctor to doctor in what we call “the cycle of frustration “ without getting to the bottom of your symptoms, we are here to help.
