I went to the same surgeon as Michelle. I've actually had three surgeries done by him: TIF (I do not recommend; it failed for me) gallbladder removal, and a nissen fundoplication. So far my nissen has resolved my reflux issues and has held up just fine but....
I do not like the surgeon's PA. She's fairly young (probably around my age) and likely not very experienced beyond textbooks, and because of this I think she is not very open minded and doesn't seem to listen very well. As long as I can remember, my body has handled pain by vommitting, which is a big no-no after a nissen. I asked her for anti-nausea medication when she came the day after surgery, and she refused to give me a prescription. Sure enough, just a few days later, I was calling her to request a prescription be called in because I was nauseous. It was a pretty close call; I was sure I would throw up before my dad made it home from the pharmacy with the medication. Fortunately, that did not happen.
When I started eating normally again, I would get headaches if I ate more than about 3/4 cup of food. I brought this up at a follow-up to the PA and she told me that what I was experiencing was "anatomically impossible". Hmm. Okay. The headaches have since tapered off as my body gets back to normal.
Bottom line: I liked the surgeon (he actually treats you like an intelligent human being), but unless you want to insist on dealing only with him, you might want to go elsewhere. Side note: His office staff has always been incredibly nice to me, especially the nurse.
