    Inguinal hernia recurrence

    Thank you Dr. Towfigh.

    If I elect to have the open repair, my surgeon mentioned using mesh or maybe a plug and patch. I have read about issues with plug and patch. Do you recommend a particular type of mesh, etc. ?
    I am also wondering about going to clinic which specializes in hernia repairs, such as yours. I live in Arkansas, but I am willing to travel. I am going back to my surgeon in a couple of weeks, I have many questions for him. However, if I do not feel comfortable with his answers, I am ready to make the decision to travel for this surgery.
    What are you thoughts on traveling for this surgery, is there the potential for follow up care issues, etc.?

    Thank you
