Life regained after surgery

Before I was seen by Dr. Lister I was suffering from gerd for over 17 years. I had tried every ppi on the market with no relief.

Dr. Lister was very knowledgeable,caring and explained in great detail the procedures on how to fix the reflux and hiatal hernia repair.

I am happy to say I no longer have gerd after my proceedure and no longer take any ppi's.
I would recommend Dr. Lister highly and he has a wonderful staff at his clinic.

Life Changing Linx Procedure

Before meeting Dr. Lister, I had Gerd for around 7 years. The problem had become so extreme that I literally could not hold down my food. Linx changed everything for me.

I first met Dr. Lister in January (2016). The first thing I want to point out about the visit is that Dr. Lister was extremely kind and personable. It was like I was his only patient. He took the time to explain everything to me in detail and welcomed any questions that I had. Although he is extremely knowledgeable and professional, he doesn't have the clinical "doctor feel" that you get from some people that work in health care. He seems to really care.

After testing, it was determined that the Linx would be the best option for me. The surgery was set for March 21st. Everything pre and post op went great. The first few days after surgery were understandably a little rough, but now everything is 100% better. The Linx has been life changing.

Before I would literally reflux for 7-8 hours after eating. Now there is not one trace of reflux. It is almost as if I never had a problem. I also have no problem belching and no feeling of discomfort at all.

If you are thinking about seeing Dr. Lister or having a procedure, do not wait. Dr. Lister is absolutely the best doctor in Arkansas for gastrointestinal problems. You would be hard pressed to find a better doctor anywhere.

Linx implant

I met Dr. Lister in April of 2014 to discuss the linx implant I had that implant put in July 2014 it has been life changing for me, it started to work for me from the moment I awoke from surgery. I am so grateful for my quality of life now. Amazing ๐Ÿ™‚ Dr. Lister and his staff are all warm and comforting people.

After many of years of Reflux (Gerd) taking every one of the medicines on the market for relief I was getting desperate for relief..One day I got a referral to Dr Lister. To my amazement he said,"Mary,let's fix you." I replied,"Are you serious?" He said, "Yes!" At age 75 I was going to get help. No one had ever suggested that any thing was available (except Scripts) to help me..I have had a real life since the surgery ...I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it is to eat anything I want and not sit up all night and pay a heavy price for doing so...My advice is , Do not put off getting your life back...Talk to Dr Lister and find out what can be done...I promise, You won't be sorry...Thank you, Dr Lister, You Are My Hero!!!

TIF now acid free 4 years

The most wonderful word in my vocabulary is TIF (Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication).
No incision-no cut-go home next day-just so wonderful. I had chronic acid reflux. I started out with medications until the pharmaceutical medications no longer helped. I ended up after doing 1 then 2 then 3 pillows to finally sleeping in a recliner NOT reclined and still had a sleepless night due to my acid reflux. Nothing worked. My sleep was now always disrupted, clearing my throat and swallowing often and so many foods that made this worse. Acid/Gerd!!! I decided to see what could be done for this much needed help.
I called Dr. Dan Lister and received an appointment from a very friendly and professional staff. Dr. Dan Lister spent time to listen to me and answer my questions and gave me the best advice to have the TIF procedure.
It has now been 4 years since Dr. Dan Lister whom I have great trust in did my TIF procedure. NOW I sleep on 1 pillow, no heartburn, no Gerd/acid reflux, no side effects and NO medications. With the TIF I am finally controlled. My satisfaction is the very best and I recommend talking to Dr. Dan Lister if you have this problem.
Because of Dr. Dan Lister I can now say
Oh what a beautiful morning
Oh what a beautiful day
Because of TIF everything is going my way
Call Dr. Dan Lister - you will be glad you did.

Living w/GERD Until Help Arrived

I first noticed the burning some years ago; several doctors prescribed meds that worked for a time. Shortly after taking the meds I became immune to them. Something had to give and I needed results. My PCM reffered Dr. D. Lister and it was the best refferal yet! Dr. Lister is one that will listen and will give you educational facts along with his expertise. I never had a long wait to see him and his staff was out of this world friendly. If you are having issues with GERD, I strongly reccomened you see Dr. Lister immediately! No need to suffer; enjoy life and Dr. Lister can help you do that.
