Important Points To Consider
When Choosing Your Hernia Surgeon:

  • Be sure to find a surgeon who focus’ on hernias and makes them a priority in their practice. A surgeon who operates on hernias at the end of a busy day or a busy week isn’t going to provide the best outcomes for you.
  • Ensure your surgeon has a high volume of hernia surgeries. No one in any field can be proficient if they are only doing something a couple of times a month.
  • Being treated at a specialized hernia center with an in-house accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) provides the highest quality care before, during, and after your hernia surgery and allows for more successful outcomes.
  • 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 your surgeon can offer the best technique tailored for your case.
  • Some laparoscopic patients experience less pain post-operatively and may be able to return to normal activities sooner. Laparoscopic hernia surgery can result in better patient experiences for some patients.
  • The newest, advanced lightweight mesh reduces not only the recurrence rate for your hernia, but also the chance of postoperative mesh pain to almost zero.
