Dr. Conze does a lot of Shouldice as well as Lichtenstein. He also does some revisional surgery.

I believe Dr. Kang does only tissue repair now, although he used to do mesh. He has his own techniques. I think you are largely correct in your observation. One comment is that Dr. Conze makes a smaller incision than the Shouldice Hospital.

It’s really a tough decision between the options you mentioned. My personal preference would be Conze because of his large number of good reviews, and the track record of Shouldice. Also, for those with a large hernia or bad tissue quality, Conze would be a better choice because he will not force a tissue repair on cases where it’s not a good fit.
