    Celebrities with hernias

    Love this post!

    But, as you can imagine, HIPAA prevents any of us surgeons to divulge any information about our patients, including whether they had hernia repair, the type, and whether they received mesh.

    I know most of those on the list had umbilical hernias, many without mesh. Some had inguinal hernias, with mesh, some laparoscopic and some open.

    Can’t be more specific… 😳
