Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

I can not answer u on this surgery, but  I do have a hiatal hernia.It is important to follow lifestyle changes as well as ur diet.Please see the Health Pages for lists of safe foods and foods to avoid.
Doing this in addition to the meds may help and prolong the need for surgry.

I am sure others may comment on the surgery .
