    I got back on to Dr. Wiese’s practice web page to see what types of procedures he performs. It looks like he has the ability to do several and chooses the one that he feels will give the best results. In another current thread there is much discussion about how surgeons tend to be “one-trick ponies”, only performing a single type of hernia repair. This is the training that today’s surgeons get, to use only mesh for hernia repair, codified by the suspect Guidelines that the EHS promotes. Very interesting that Dr. Wiese is there in Europe but chooses his own path.

    Here is the text from the web site, to add to Freeman’s report of receiving a Shouldice type repair.
