Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF)
The TIF® (Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication) medical procedure can effectively treat the root cause of moderate to severe GERD and fills the treatment gap between pharmacological therapy and more traditional invasive surgical options.
The TIF procedure is not performed through an incision, but transorally. With this technology, the anti-reflux valve at the gastroesophageal junction is restored to proper valve function. The procedure generally takes less than one hour, and most patients can return to normal activity within 1-3 days. Clinical studies show that 80% of patients remain off daily PPIs at three years following the procedure.
Importantly, the TIF 2.0 procedure has repeatedly been proven to avoid post-fundoplication symptoms such as gas bloat, flatulence, dysphagia, and diarrhea.

Dr. Anthony Pozzessere specializes in performing diverticulitis surgeries using the laparoscopic method which calls for small, precise incisions to be made at the operating site. Being committed to patient-centered care, Dr. Anthony prefers to adopt those methods as they cause minimal disruption to a patient’s life, and help them recover as quickly as possible after TIF surgery.
