About Hernia Repair
Hernia surgery is tailored specifically to the individual needs of each and every patient. We are familiar with the various advanced Tension Free repair techniques commonly in use today, and all of the mesh system methods and diverse products are fully available to us. Rather than utilizing the same mesh product for all hernias, we individually select the precise mesh product (selecting the precise size, shape, configuration and manufacturer) at the time of surgery that is best suited for each hernia. This selection process, which is the foundation for what we call the "benchmark" approach. This approach is based on our extensive experience, developed by performing nearly 1000 hernia repairs annually and "specializing" in hernia repairs for over 20 years. This expertise in both routine and complex hernia surgery assures that all of our patients receive the most satisfactory, safest and importantly the most effective repair available.
Surgical Repair of inguinal, femoral, umbilical and many simple and complex incisional hernias can be safely and effectively performed as a same-day, outpatient ambulatory procedure. This includes most recurrent hernias as well.
For the most common inguinal hernia, we utilize a "tension-free" repair technique, increasingly recognized by hernia specialists as the most superior method for hernia surgery.
- We utilize a Mini-Incision "Open" Technique, using mild sedation and local anesthesia for the majority of all hernia repairs. Surgery is performed through a small incision (about 2 inches) with the patient awake, and comfortably free of pain. Our patients are walking shortly after surgery, and are discharged within about 1-2 hours.
