Gosh, it almost sounds as if your surgeon didn't give you much to go on!
 
Yes, in terms of surgical procedures to manage LPR, the Nissen is the best bet because it completely surrounds the LES.  The other laparoscopic procedure, the Toupet (270-degree wrap), while it may offer slightly more comfort, is better-suited to those who mostly experience heartburn and no other symptoms.
 
Best wishes for a comfortable recovery!
