Did you know that one out of every 200 adults in the United States will see their doctor for a hernia? Unfortunately, that’s only a fraction of the estimated 5 million people in the U.S. with hernias that will seek medical attention. While hernias are not limited to males, roughly 90 percent of all abdominal hernias occur in men. The good news is that virtually all hernias can be repaired.
We have developed a special interest in hernias and have performed hundreds of hernia repairs. We employ state-of-the-art repair techniques and materials that ultimately decrease patient recovery time. In fact, most of our patients are back to work at their desk jobs within one week. We encourage you to contact our office today to resolve your hernia issues.
