I need surgery for a giant paraesophageal hernia. I was scheduled to have it done with one surgeon, but had second thoughts. I know I need the surgery, but felt uncomfortable with the surgeon. I have met with 2 other surgeons and now I'm trying to find more info on them. I am wondering if any of you have heard of either of them, or perhaps used them for your surgery. It is such a big surgery that I want to make sure I have the right surgeon.

Dr. Gary W. Chmielewski, Rush University Hospital, Chicago
Dr Michael C. Coello, St John's Hospital, Grosse Pointe, MI (formerly of William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI)

Thanks for anything you can tell me.

You might try these links but please remember I am not endorsing either of these Drs.
Gary W. Chmielewski, MD
Dr Michael C. Coello
I am wondering how you picked these 2 physicians ? Good luck in narrowing down your choice.
