Hello Reba,

I am sure your doctor means TIF (Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication). There are several members on the board here who've had this surgery and I am considering it myself. Depending on your situation it is possible that you may be an ideal candidate for this. However, it is also possible that you might be suited better for Nissen Fundoplication. Why don't you tell us more about yourself and your symptoms etc. and we can give you our opinions.

You can also search for TIF in the top right corner of this page (under Videos) - and you'll be able to read the threads that contain several discussions and threads related to this surgery.
