Question Reflux surgery - anyone have experience with TIF?

Hi, I am contemplating having surgery, as part of a study, to reduce or eliminate my chronic reflux. The surgery would entail transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) by inserting a device called an EsophyX. It is supposed to be an alternative to the Nissen Fundoplication but with fewer side effects. I understand that it is a revisable but not reversible surgery. Has anyone had experience with this surgery/device? Your comments/input would be greatly appreciated.
