Sorry for the many posts about surgeons. I am @ Duke so if I can find a great Nissen dr. here that would be great. I am going to call around tomorrow. My GI does not think surgery is the best approach but I feel crappy as hell so I am going to contact surgeons directly.

I just had my surgery at Duke on August 16 th. Dr. Onaitis was my surgeon. He was a great surgeon with a great bedside manner. I had the Nissen, hiatal hernia repair, abdominal hernia repair and a feeding tube placed in. I am really underweight because of my lung disease hence the tube. I hope this helps.

Thanks Ryobe :) Did you do a search to find out that Onaitis was the best around, or was he just the first dr. you had an appt. with? I'll see if I can get an appt. with him, thanks.

I am being evaluated for a double lung transplant so I used the one that all the transplant patients use. He was also highly recommended. My pulmo doctors got my appointment and scheduled all the tests then the surgery was three weeks later. He is a busy man but even does his own weekend rounds with his precious son.
