There's 3 different nissens-180, 270, full
Then TIF (they go down your esophagus and staple a fold in the LES)
Then the Linx (you get a metal stretchy bracelet like thing around your LES)

I had the the 270 wrap done. I wanted the TIF but my HH was too big. If the HH is bigger than 2cm you can't have it.

Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
