Peter, you previously indicated that you are in Canada. Have you approached the surgeons at the Shouldice Hospital, just north of Toronto? Their chief surgeon (Dr. Fernando Spencer Netto) was interviewed here by Dr. Towfigh. In that interview Dr. Spencer Netto mentioned that in addition to his hernia practice, he also has practiced trauma surgery. If he can’t help directly, he may be able to point you towards other specialists. Similarly, Dr. Frederick Brenneman at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto is a trauma surgeon who expresses an interest in complicated abdominal hernias.
