Nissen Fundo Surgeon Lists

Good Afternoon,

Well, after tearing through PPI's, with only one working (Nexium for 4 years or so), my GI, whom I trust, is recommending a Nissen Fundo. He is recommending a Bariatric Surgeon from Towson, MD (I am located in York, PA) but I am curious how I can find a "renowned" NF surgeon, or one that has done at least 1000 of these or so. I have a good insurance plan, and will travel to have it done by the right surgeon.

Thank you!!

Re: Nissen Fundo Surgeon Lists

I wanted to bump this thread. Can any of you that have had wraps done please post your surgeons name? Is that against the rules of the board?

So far, I am looking into Dr. Cassivi from Mayo Clinic and Dr. Aye from Swedish in Seattle. I was looking into Dr. Adrian Park but he has left UMD Medical Center in Baltimore, a place that is very close to me.....
