Our office is staffed by friendly, experienced, professionals, who understand that being seen in consultation for a possible surgery can be a source of anxiety.  We strive to offer appointments quickly, generally within 72 hours, since information and education are frequently the best antidote to this natural fear of the unknown. All emergencies are seen that same day.

Most of the hernia repairs we perform are done using the latest minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques, in an ambulatory outpatient setting.  We  will call you the next day, to be sure you are doing well, and to answer any questions that may have arisen since your surgery.

We encourage phone calls to the office for simple questions and advice.  However, in keeping with the highest level of medical practice, please realize we cannot truly practice quality medicine over the phone, and may recommend that you come to the office for evaluation. We want you to get the finest care, always.




Patient Testimonial:
“…I will highly recommend you to anyone with a hernia problem. Please thank your office staff which is always most pleasant, thoughtful and professional each time I have visited…”
