Hill repair is probably not any more durable than any of the others. But the main thing is to get the APPROPRIATE procedure for your particular condition - based on your testing. You need to go to a major center, see a surgeon who has done thousands of procedures, and not accept a one-size-fits-all procedure just because that's the only one a surgeon does.
I had a modified Nissen, called a Toupet fundoplication. It's a partial wrap. I can't burp much or vomit at all, but I take no PPIs and have no reflux.
what happens if you have a short esophagus and discuss it with the surgeon.. If you've had a hernia for a long time this can happen. My docs had to dissect quite a lot to get enough esophagus freed up, so they wouldn't have to do a Collis.
