I TOTALLY agree with Multifundo. Don't go back to same surgeon if you don't absolutely have to. A redo is more challenging and complicated, and to ensure that it's successful and fixes your problems, you need a surgeon that is highly skilled and experienced in redos.
Medical centers in larger cities have more experience with problems, and will ensure you have a successful result. You can research which centers are rated highly in GI treatments. If you can travel, great. Or if you live in a large enough city to have a great GI/thoracic surgeon with lots of experience, that will work, too. Consider researching and then interviewing several surgeons if at all possible.
If you are planning on staying on this forum and looking for more support and responses, I suggest you start your own thread with an appropriate title on the main page. Here's the link: GERD - Heartburn
