Hello:
Could someone let me know of a Nissen Surgeon in Altanta, Ga? I'm considering surgery for my GERD and would like to hear from anyone who had success with a surgeon in the Altanta area.
 
Thank you!

Dr. John Sweeney at Emory University in Atlanta has been posted as a Dr. used by another member in the Atlanta area.

Thank you so much! Have you had the Nissen and would you recommend it? I drink water and feel the burn. The GI Doctors have me on the Max doses of PPI's and nothing works. Its depressing and discouraging. I just want to feel normal again.

Sassy,
