His career experience is over 10,000 major surgical procedures including 4,000 non-mesh hernia surgeries and 3,000 cancer operations and 4,000 other operations for treating a variety of life threatening conditions. Dr. Petersen has a particular interest in non-mesh hernia repair and treatment of hernia mesh complications.

Dr. Petersen has been performing surgery for uninsured patients for his entire twenty-five year career. Recently the number of patients seeking this kind of care has dramatically increased and in response to this Dr. Petersen has formed No Insurance Surgery, Inc and now only accepts new patients without insurance. (He has, however, retained all of his old insured patients.)

Health care reform is currently a big topic in the news and Dr. Petersen has been interviewed by print, radio and TV news outlets regarding No Insurance Surgery. See our In the Media web page for more information.
