Ok everyone I need to pick. Which surgery is best? Nissen, toupet, or hill? I have a small hiatal hernia and don't respond to ANY medication. I'd like to know your opinions

The option of techniques has typically been based on anatomic considerations, as well as the surgeon’s preference and expertise. Several techniques have been extensively proven and tested to be effective in controlling reflux with minimal unwanted effects.

A lot depends on your pre surgery testing. if u dont have a normal swallowing pattern then the partial wraps are usually best. if its normal and the reflux is bad enough the full wrap probably would b best. but it ultimately up to what you and your surgeon believe is the right choice for you.
Take care

Thanks for the comments. Does anyone know how long a Nissen will last? I'm finding conflicting information some say only 5-10 years. That seems horrible. What happens when it comes back? How many times can you rewrap. GERD sucks!!!!!!!
