I scoured the forums to find this info, but I thought it would be useful to maintain a separate thread to see where people are getting LINX done in the US.
It might also help people get a fair assessment of who the most skilled surgeons are.
The complete list of implant centers is atwww.toraxmedical.com/linx/implantingCenters.php
Please add any info you have. So far, I have:
Dr. Jeffrey Peters - Shoozwww.urmc.rochester.edu/people/25717891-jeffrey-h-peters
Dr. Peters is supposed to be very nice, according to Shooz.
Dr. John Lipham - www.surgery.usc.edu/uppergi-general/gastroesophagealrefluxdisease-linx.htmlwww.surgery.usc.edu/uppergi-general/facultystaff-lipham_john.html
His department is headed by DeMeester (of the DeMeester score fame) and was the original pioneers of LINX. I would guess they did more LINXs than anybody else so far.
Dr. Daniel Smith, Mayo Clinic, JacksonVille - BEACH-GIRL got it done herewww.mayoclinic.org/bio/10766073.html
Dr. Rattner, Mass General, Boston - Linx99 got it herewww.massgeneral.org/digestive/doctors/doctor.aspx?id=16613
