Fastest recovery from Inguinal Hernia Surgery, Pilonidal Disease including Cleft Lift and Laser
I perform a hernia repair that combines the benefits of laparoscopic and open surgery. Patients have less pain and recover more quickly than those who have traditional open or laparoscopic surgery! I have been in practice for almost 14 years. I have become a specialist in Inguinal Hernia surgery and over the last 7 years i have also become a specialist in the treatment of Pilonidal disease. I teach MGH residents and Tufts Medical students how to diagnose these conditions and how to perform safe surgery. I concentrate on only a few conditions and love what I do. I currently take emergency room call and perform emergency surgery on most abdominal organs as well.
