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.

Always an educational opportunity with @IHC_hernia

@VNikolian @OrensteinSean @AzarowKen @tsikitis @Herniadoc @abhishekpar @NovitskyYuri @hgok @jennyshaomd @andrewswright @Trules25 @IHC_hernia Thanks a lot for the explanation. Really it’s great to applicate some of the open approach principles in MIS hernia surgery. I’m a follower of IHC. These explanations along with the CVS principle are a great attraction for MIS for hernias.
