nissen fundoplication redo

I had a Lap Nissen Fundoplication performed 2 years ago. The wrap came undone shortly after the surgery. I have been on PPI's since and approximately 3 months ago the medicines have stopped working. I have severe GERD daily and considering the surgery again. My original surgeon was recommended by my GI doc and is really a very good surgeon, performed hundreds of these with only a few patients with my outcome. I have talked to him about a redo. He said it couldn't be done laproscopically and that the 2nd surgery would be harder to do than the first. My question is, should I go to another surgeon? My husband is a doctor and said "If he didn't do it right the first time, what makes you think he would do it right the 2nd time?" Could it have come undone due to something I did perhaps?
