What our happy patients are saying…

My dad had hernia surgery three times, so when I started to feel a little bump at the bottom of my abdomen, I knew what was happening. I just couldn’t ignore it any longer.

Jim, Age 51

Like so many people who ignore their hernias, Jeff tried to live with the painful bulge that got bigger and bigger as the day progressed. Finally, he had to admit that the hernia was interfering with his life.
