Our Affiliate System

We are building one organization with affiliates in two regions. Our parent company, now known as Prisma Health, supports both affiliates with overall direction and leadership as we continue to align. We will soon share one brand across the entire organization to better reflect this. The rebranded Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.

We are becoming Prisma Health in early 2019

Stretta Therapy

Resolve Reflux. Reduce or Eliminate Meds. Avoid Invasive Surgery- With Stretta Therapy

If you suffer from Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and prescription medication no longer helps and you don’t want to move forward with invasive surgical treatments, Stretta Therapy may be the right option for you.

What is GERD?

GERD is a condition that occurs when the muscle between your stomach and esophagus is weak, stomach contents like acid or bile can reflux up into your esophagus causing GERD symptoms. Chronic symptoms occurring more than twice a week may be considered GERD.

What is Stretta?

Stretta is a non-surgical, outpatient procedure that treats the underlying cause of GERD – a weak muscle between the stomach and esophagus. Stretta has been shown to:
• Significantly reduce GERD symptoms
• Eliminate or decrease medications
• Decrease acid exposure
• Improve quality of life

How does Stretta Work?

• Treatment is delivered at multiple levels in lower esophagus
• RF energy stimulates the muscle to grow over time
• After the sedation wears off, you can be taken home

Treatment goal: a thicker muscle to improve barrier function and prevent all types of reflux events (acid, bile, etc.)
