Hernia Center of Excellence

A Higher Level of Surgery

More than 600,000 hernia repairs are performed in the US each year, making it one of the more common general surgical procedures performed. If you’ve been diagnosed with a hernia, surgery is likely. The good news, patients whose surgery is performed at a high-volume, nationally accredited institution tend to have better outcomes.

Symptoms of a hernia may include swelling, bulging, tenderness or pain in your abdomen, stomach, or groin. Some hernias can get worse over time, but surgery can help make a difference for many patients. If you are living with pain from a hernia and have been thinking about surgery, don’t wait any longer.
