Hi~ had both so far~ in 3 weeks I will be experiencing my 3rd
open Repair....2003~ Nissen Fundoplication~ failed in 6 months w/ an unwrapping by Dr. Vincent DePinto /( I should have filed Malpractice ..seriously!!!!!) Colo Spgs.....______/
2nd was 1 year later with an awesome surgeon Dr. Peter Zimmer ~ a Hill Repair (Dr. Hill invented this in Washington State) few have actually had an open Hill Repair after an open nissen ( as quickly as I have).
6 years I have been great until recently~ unwrapping again! Next month I will have another Nissen/ w/ an pinch of hill.....open~ another 10 days i am sure. Dr. Reginald Bell in Denver is only a few surgeons that can do this in the USA! He can be googled/ found at Swedish Hospital~ I am so incredibly impressed , if anyone needs help or advice/ please let me know.... firstname.lastname@example.org
