Dr Fraser performs a number of different types of specialised endoscopic procedures. These are performed in state of the art endoscopy units in premier Edinburgh hospitals using the latest equipment and expertly trained nurses.
The Stretta Procedure
The Stretta endoscopic anti-reflux procedure is a minimally invasive therapy for acid (gastro-oesophageal) reflux. State of the art technology delivers radiofrequency energy to strengthen the lower oesophageal sphincter and prevent acid reflux from occurring.
