Here is a link. www.refluxstudy.com The study is now closed, but, there is information on possible closing of the LES valve. It is basically a magnetic bracelet that was inserted at the base of the esophagus.

Which surgery are you thinking about - the lappy or the full 360 degree wrap

I just had the full surgery in January and I'm in heaven - my hernia was the size of a fist and would come all the way up past my stomach (had 2 lappies prior that failed)

I am on the verge of needing surgery for my hiatal hernia so I checked out some videos that were informative to me. Feel free to click on these and draw your own conclusions.
