What Patients Say: Inguinal Hernias
Here it is two weeks after hernia surgery and I am a new man. I was scarcely able to get out of bed in the morning much less go to work, run my business, help care for my two teenage sons – just the normal part of every day living of a man in his 40s. The huge hernia I had totally incapacitated me. I luckily found you as I desperately searched for other alternatives to the mesh repair commonly used by other doctors to repair hernias. Your Modified Shouldice Method for hernia repair was the answer to my prayers. It is all that you describe and more.
The simplicity of the outpatient surgery, the comfort that a skilled specialist such as yourself who has performed over 20,000 of these types of surgeries would be the hand behind the scalpel was comforting. The knowledge that you would not cut out my nerves or amputate my â€œfamily jewelsâ€ as was suggested by other surgeons that I had consulted with and the minimal pain I experienced after your surgery is all just short of a miracle to me.
Three days after my surgery I was able to drive to our vacation destination. Now two weeks following surgery the only evidence that a surgery had even happened is a light pink line on my groin. You are worth every penny of your fee because what price does one put on the quality of life.
Thank you for giving me back mine!!!!!!
