Hernia Prevention & Incisional Hernia Surgery
For patients who have undergone repeated surgeries to fix a persistent hernia, Dr. Towfigh has a great deal to offer. First, she is the leading expert in preventing complex hernia cases in Los Angeles. Not all doctors discuss these matters sufficiently with their patients, but Dr. Towfigh knows that, for patients prone to hernias or who have had several surgeries, prevention is key to moving on with their lives. She will discuss a combination of diet and core-strengthening exercise so that, after surgery, the patient can get on with his or her life without having to worry about the possibility of another hernia.
In some cases, a patient’s surrounding muscle tissue may be too weak on its own, so Dr. Towfigh will recommend using hernia surgery mesh to hold muscles and organs in place to prevent hernia recurrence. Dr. Towfigh can discuss different types of mesh, including synthetic or biological options. These are a good option to repair incisional hernias as well, to give the wound extra support and allow it to close.

Dr. Shirin Towfigh specializes in diagnosing and treating abdominal wall hernias for both men and women, but she a number of her female patients are especially grateful because she has corrected issues that may have led to years of discomfort. Men are more prone to developing hernias than women, which unfortunately also means that many women have hernias that go undiagnosed. Especially if a woman has been pregnant, is overweight or obese, or has a chronic cough due to asthma or smoking, she can develop a hernia that a non-specialist may not discover until possibly serious complications have emerged.
