    What an incredible staff Dr. Hiler has created. I’m a pretty healthy individual but the few times that I’ve had problems I was nurtured back to health by Dr. Hiler. I suffer from diverticulitis. It’s very painful and I’m so thankful to have Dr. Hiler on my team.

    Dr. Hiler offers LINX ®, a new laparoscopic procedure to treat GERD. This procedure involves a string of metal beads that are drawn together by a magnet. When this string is placed around the lower esophagus, the magnet pulls the beads together and closes off the esophagus from the stomach.
