How did you find the surgeon that specializes in this and how many he had done?

I came to Mayo, thinking I had cancer (30lb weight loss) after having a GI specialist in my home state treat me unsuccessfully for years. Mayo GI dept had my prior scans and theirs which indicated half my stomach was above the diaphragm, there was some erosion, and referred me to a surgeon at Mayo at my request. The surgeon stated I had a grapefruit sized whole in my diaphragm allowing the stomach to move upward. Diagnosed on Friday and surgery was on a Monday. I flew home on Friday.
