Information please on Belsey fundoplication

I have had three fundoplications in fifteen months, two with five incisions and an open, all three have failed. Now going to have a Belsey Fundoplication, No matter where I look I can find no information on this, how it is done, hospital stay, pain level, or any other information. Does anyone know a website I can find information on this. Thanks.

The Belsey is an operation that was done prior to the introduction of the Nissen. These days it isn't done as frequently as the Nissen, so you'll typically only be able to find a complete description in a medical textbook such as Mastery of Surgery. You can read the technical details at: http://books.google.com/books?id=PgUFJg_-f4YC&pg=PA687&lpg=PA687&dq=belsey+fundoplication&source=bl&ots=f_Td3LzHB7&sig=AnoueUmwlQMLGdfEm1iPpeDlE2s&hl=en&ei=PI8YTu3PFIXjiAKYrfTRBQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&sqi=2&ved=0CCYQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&q=belsey%20fundoplication&f=false

For further information on hospital stay, etc., you should query your doctor.
