Looking for recommended hernia experts in Oregon?
Hi Dr Towfigh,
Thank you for the quick reply and recommendations! I contacted the offices and was told the doctors had either shifted away from hernias for most patients or required a direct referral and were booked months out, so that’s that I guess, but reception offered four other surgeon names who do hernia repair at the same Portland clinic and that are accepting new patients. It sounds like they are all laparoscopic surgeons and the receptionist said they use ‘soft bard mesh’
The surgeons (in Portland Oregon) were:
– Dr Richard Jamison
– Dr Chet Hammill
– Dr John Zelko
– Dr Ron Wolf
Do you happen to know any of them or could recommend by expertise?
I know this is kind of a shot in the dark given that your practice is many miles away in another state, but I’d appreciate any additional leads. I’ve never had to find a surgeon before and I don’t even know where to begin!
