After looking at options in USA, after suffering from years of GERD, went to Madrid and got a Nissen Fundoplication done at a top private hospital for 5,000 euros, by a doctor who has done hundreds of the laparoscopic procedures. A fraction of the price, a more humane and a less mercantile attitude than what passes for "health care" in the USA. Immediate results, no further acid reflux (checked by ph meter), all my symptoms have disappeared in a month, no issues in recovery other than having to eat more slowly and smaller portions; got rid of my inclined bed; no more PPIs with all of their secondary effects; and I am able to eat a more or less normal diet (but I have decided to keep a GERD sensitive diet in any case). The best medical decision I have ever made by far. If cost is keeping you from doing this, go to Spain!
