Specializing in Non Mesh Hernia Repair

Our primary area of speciality is non-mesh hernia repair and treatment of patients who are suffering from pain caused by hernia mesh.

No Insurance surgery provides quality surgery to patients who are uninsured or under insured. No Insurance surgery is dedicated to the idea that a third party payer does not add value to health care, does not decrease the cost of health care and does not improve access to health care.

One of the more remarkable things that has happened to health care in the past thirty years is the establishment of provider networks. But what is wrong with a patient just picking up a phone, calling a doctors office and making an appointment? Not a thing. Doctors don't benefit from networks. Patients don't benefit. But third party payers want to control patients access to doctors.

If you need surgery, call us, have a free consultation with the doctor and schedule your surgery. All in one day. Don't worry about the third party. We won't.

We recognize that the first thing patients needs is good information and no wait access.

That is why we offer free consultations.

Patient Testimonials


May 13, 2013 Fresno, CA

Dr. Petersen, Kari, and the girl whose name I didn't find out when I was there,

Thank you's are coming in from all over, so I thought you'd like to know about them:

1.) from the Intestine brothers (Large and Small) for not being rerouted every time I stand, sit, or lie down.

2.) from my left testicle, for not having to share his studio apartment with the Intestine brothers.

3.) from my girlfriend, who says, "It looks just like it did before the hernia!" (you know how important looks are).

and 4.) from me for re-instilling my trust in the medical profession and for trusting me to finish paying my bill when you didn't know me from Adam.

All goes well here, I have some pain, but am monitoring it guardedly. I'm down to 1 Percocet, and 1 Aleve every 12 hrs. and all systems are go (if you know what I mean). So, again, from all of us, to all of you, a big THANK YOU!

Good times to come, JP

I was diagnosed with several autoimmune diseases over the last 17 years after mesh was used in a surgical procedure to repair a hernia in 1996. I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on doctors and naturopaths to alleviate these symptoms. I finally was diagnosed with paratonitis (sic) and looked to see who could remove the mesh that was in my body. After reading the testimonials from Dr. Petersen’s website, we decided to go ahead with the procedure. After two weeks from surgery my recovery is amazing. Energy levels are very good and I don’t have any discomfort or inflammation in my groin area. I would highly recommend Dr.  Petersen if you are experiencing problems with mesh.

T o Whom It May Concern,

My name is Carolyn Watkins. I am 65 years old. I am writing this testimony to highly recommend Dr. Kevin C. Petersen, his staff and the Medical District Surgery Center in Las Vegas, NV.

In January, 2010, I had surgery to repair an inguinal hernia. Surgipro mesh was used in the repair. For almost three years, I had suffered with pain, swelling and constant pressure. Although the pain was not daily, not a week went by that I did not have some pain. My surgeon said that this was normal. I saw another physician who advised me going to a different surgeon.

May 16, 2011, South Lake Tahoe, CA - After several days of on-line research to find the most cost effective way to have my hernia repaired, I contacted No Insurance Surgery (NIS) for a consultation. It turned out to be a very smart move. Dr. Peterson's education and experience speaks for itself and after a phone consultation with him, I felt assured that he had both the necessary experience and a very enlightened approach to practicing medicine. I'm no newcomer to surgery----this was #23 for me so I have much experience with how doctors and their staff work. (read more...)

May 12, 2011, Oceanside, CA - I did not consider other options before choosing No Insurance Surgery, as they were not accessible due to financial constraints. When I looked online for lower cost alternatives, I discovered NIS and went to the web site and read it cover to cover. The testimonials were what really caught my attention. Also, the method for evaluating my condition and the personal telephone call from the surgeon is unheard of (read more...)

February 15, 2011, Apple Valley, CA - After viewing No Insurance Surgery website, my interest was piqued. Also having seen the YouTube video I began to believe a little more. Reading the many personal testimonials cemented the deal for me. It was all about putting my trust in the right doctor. Dr. Petersen is the real deal. Forget the money, trust is more important. Having said that it was the best money I ever spent. God Bless to the faint hearted. (read more...)
