Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone knows of any surgeons who perform the LINX procedure? I am in Australia and it isn't done here, so I am willing to fly overseas to get it done.

The only operations offered here are the Nissen and esophyx.

The Nissen sounds too dodgy to me. I'd like to still be able to burp, and if in the event of getting food poising, I'd also like to be able to vomit. Also, it also seems that after 8 to 10 years it needs to be re-done, which is somewhat complicated having it done the second time.

The esophyx looks promising, but also looks iffy. I've watched videos of the procedure and although it claims to be reversible, I highly doubt it.

So far the LINX procedure looks the most appealing to me so I am happy to spend the money and get it done overseas. Just need to find a surgeon and will make arrangements from there.

Anyone have anyone they can recommend?

Thanks in advance

Good Morning,
Here is a link to a thread re  Linx.  It has a part 1 and a part 2.  You will find info at the bottom of part 1 on how to access part 2.
I hope this helps you.
