  • Inguinal or femoral hernia- located in the groin
  • Incisional or ventral- located in the abdominal wall around a previous incision
  • Umbilical or epigastric- located in the middle of the abdomen
  • Diaphragmatic- located in the muscle between the abdomen and chest
  • Paraesophageal or hiatal- located around the esophagus.

Our surgical techniques for hernia result in extremely low recurrence rates.  Our talented surgeons have performed thousands of hernia repairs, so you know you are in experienced hand you can trust.
