I think it is fairly new but it sounds like it may be the one that causes the least amount of structural change in the esophagus.
I would like to know if it is reversible in the event one cannot tolerate the device.
It sounds from what I have read that they insert a device that mimics the action of the LES. It will be interesting to see if anyone has had it yet.
My only concern with it being so new is that the surgeons may have not yet worked out all the kinks in the system and I would hate to be their guinea pigs.
