In brief: 90% Satisfaction

Long-term studies demonstrate that the happiest people are those whose quality-of-life was most compromised by gerd prior to surgery.
While this is an excellent operation, it is not for the "casual refluxer": it is best reserved for those who cannot control their symptoms despite dietary and lifestyle modifications, supplemented by meds. An excellent pre-op measure of this is a 24-hr pH study.
