  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of two separate procedures to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) also known as heartburn. The two therapies are: 1) a banding procedure alone using the Cook® 6 Shooter™ Saeed Multi-Band Ligator or 2) a banding/shaving procedure called Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR) using the Cook® Duette™ Multi-Band Mucosectomy device.
