Put your hernia in the hands of the experts
At Surgical Specialists, we specialize in the surgical treatment of all types of abdominal hernias, from the simplest to the most complex, including groin hernias (inguinal), belly button hernias (umbilical), ventral or incisional hernias, and hiatal hernias.
Our surgeons, Dr. David and Dr. Salameh, are fellowship-trained and have special expertise in the most advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques, including laparoscopic and robotic surgery. They will complete a highly personalized and comprehensive evaluation to determine the surgical procedure best suited for you in order to avoid repeat hernias and complications. With an experience of over 3000 hernia operations and numerous presentations and publications on hernia surgery, our surgeons are true “hernia specialists” in every sense.
Less pain and quick recovery
It is estimated that 5 million Americans have hernias but only 700,000 have them surgically repaired each year. Hernias do not resolve on their own and actually tend to get larger with time. They can also lead to potential complications such as incarceration or strangulation (where bowel gets trapped inside a hernia). People however avoid treating their hernias because they fear painful surgery. Today this is not necessarily the case. With laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques, our surgeons perform hernia surgery on an outpatient basis with minimal pain and downtime so you can resume normal activity quickly within a few days.
