I'm actually going to see the surgeon (Dr. Paresh Shah) today at 3. We are going to discuss the results of my pre-op tests. If all goes well and I'm still a candidate I will push for July. I would do it sooner and the Dr said he could do it this month. However, I have some personal obligations to attend too, so July works much better.
Dr. Shah has not performed any Linx surgeries as of yet. I maybe the first. He does have others on a list depending approval of insurance. He has performed over 450 Nissens for the record. He is also sits on the advisory board for Torax and he is the Chief Larposcopic surgeon at Lenox Hill.
