Important Points To Consider
When Choosing A Hernia Surgeon:

 
  • The newest, advanced lightweight mesh can reduce not only recurrence rates for hernias, but also reduces the chance of postoperative mesh pain to almost zero.
  • Being treated at a specialized hernia center with an in-house accredited ASC provides the highest quality care before, during, and after your hernia surgery.
  • Patients should be seen by a surgeon who can offer all forms of hernia surgery, including open lightweight mesh techniques, as well as advanced laparoscopic techniques. This ensures the surgeon can offer the best technique tailored for each patient.
  • Costs for uninsured patients are $1500 for the surgeon fees, $2000 for the surgery center fees (including OR time, materials, and recovery) and $485 for the anesthesiologist for a total of $3985. There are no hidden fees.
  • Some laparoscopic patients experience less pain post-operatively and may be able to return to normal activities sooner (when compared to traditional hernia repair). Laparoscopic hernia surgery can result in better patient experiences for some patients.
