Our Specialties

Chronic Pain

Treatment of chronic pain after hernia repair can be complicated. But it can be treated.

Mesh Complications

We treat mesh-related pain, mesh-reactions, and mesh infections.

Laparoscopic & Robotic

In many cases, laparoscopic or robotic-assisted techniques can provide improved outcome and recovery. Most of our repairs use this technology.

Non-Mesh Repairs

Not all patients benefit from mesh repair. We believe in non-mesh tissue repair for many women, thin, and some younger patients.
