Do you guarantee hernia surgery?


Because of our low recurrence rate we could afford to do it in a limited way. But we do not, because we have found that patients follow instructions much better when it really matters to them that they get the best results possible.

Nobody can guarantee surgery. No surgery has zero risks. Patients have to understand this and accept the risks. Telling a patient that any surgery is guaranteed opens up enormous liability risks for a doctor making such a claim. Patients who come back to us for a redo recieve a significant discount depending on the circumstances. We try very hard to keep all of our patients happy.
