The Forbury Clinic enhance LPR diagnostic services with new Restech pH Monitor systems

The Forbury Clinic are a group of dedicated surgeons and medical professionals who aim to provide the highest standards of care and treatment from the comfortable and spacious surroundings of their two Reading based clinics.

Providing consulting, diagnostic and treatment over a variety of specialty areas of medicine and surgery, GDS were delighted to begin working with the consultant team to support the addition of the Restech pH monitoring systems to enhance their LPR diagnostics.

Restech pH measurement revolutionises pH testing with patented technology uniquely capable of sensing and recording both aerosolised and liquid pH levels, allowing for a less invasive diagnostic process and significantly improved comfort for patients suffering from reflux symptoms.  Restech represents a breakthrough in technology to measure the full spectrum of acid and alkali in either the oesophagus or the airway.  Restech can rule in or rule out acid reflux and eliminate the need for empiric trials when assessing and diagnosing patients.

Tom RourkeLeading the integration of the Restech systems at Forbury, Consultant ENT Surgeon Tom Rourke commented on the inclusion of the new pH monitoring capability;

“We are continually looking to improve our diagnostic and treatment capabilities by including the latest medical innovations at our Berkshire clinics.  Our decision to add Restech pH measurement systems to our diagnostic services was driven by our continued commitment to develop the most effective treatment pathway for our patients suffering from suspected reflux.

The addition of Restech pH monitoring diagnostics to both our clinics gives our patients access to a simple, accurate and reliable reflux diagnosis using a minimally invasive probe which causes little or no disruption to their daily work or leisure activities.  Restech has enhanced the overall diagnostic and treatment pathway for people looking to us for help and support in resolving what is a continually life effecting condition.

Our two Berkshire based clinics are centres of excellence with a strong and highly experienced team of consultants, specialist nurses, healthcare professionals and administrators.  It is our aim to provide excellent care and support from the very start”

The All New REZA BAND®: A Device to Treat Acid Reflux in the Throat and Lungs (6.5.15)

GDS - About UsWith an expanding range of technologies, we are delighted to confirm GDS have secured the distribution rights to the new REZA BAND® from Somna Therapeutics here in the UK.  In line with the new product availability, we are also pleased to be able to make this product available to purchase within our new online purchasing facility.

The REZA BAND® was created to improve the quality of life for millions of patients suffering from Acid Reflux into the throat and lungs. It is revolutionary in that it is a mechanical treatment that avoids the potential side effects of pharmaceutical treatments or the heavily invasive nature of surgery. It is also, uniquely, a completely reversible treatment. The REZA BAND® is an externally worn device that applies a slight pressure to the cricoid cartilage. In so doing, the REZA BAND® generates an adequate intraluminal UES pressure within the otherwise
leaky sphincter. This prevents reflux from stomach contents from entering the upper airway and throat.

This product is now also available to purchase from our REZA BAND® order page.
