Laparoscopic Anti-Reflux Surgery

Hi,
Has anyone had Laparoscopic Anti-Reflux Surgery?
Doctors said it is the only way to control the acid in my stomach and might help my burping.
Has anyone experienced this procedure dont particularly like being cut up, is it worth it.
Doctors are not that confident as if it is hit or miss.

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  I assume you are talking about a nissen fundoplication.  If so, there are risks to this procedure, and your doctor should talk to you about what the risks versus benefits are for this procedure.
