Sorry MNChick--have been travelling a lot.
Best Minnesota Laproscopic Surgeons I have found so far based on education, operation hours, laproscopic experience, and number of laproscopic nissen procedures performed and experience in doing Nissen revisional surgeries (redos).
Claude Deschamps, M.D. Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN
Dr. Howard M. McCollister Minnesota Insititute of Minimally Invasive Surgery
Dr. Timothy LeMieur Minnesota Insititute of Minimally Invasive Surgery
Also have the bead on a doctor at the UofM and one at Abbott Northwestern--both in Minneapolis.
I do not have all the information to my satisfaction to post information yet-but will when I do.
Expanding search into Chicagoland:
Constantine T. Frantzides M.D., PhD, F.A.C.S.
Note to Moderator: these are links to surgeon webistes based on my primary research. I have no vested interest and am not soliciting, advertising, promoting, or fundraising. Just sharing what might be helpful information to some in this forum.
Edit: Thanks MM and as I am a Minnesotan too I recognized several of your resources.
