Any update? How are you doing? Have you seen a doctor about your recurrence?
What was your original repair type that failed? You might want to seek out a specialist who has experience in recurrences.
I am not sure of what surgery types performed you would need to inquire directly and ask if they have experience with recurrences as well, but a few names of west coast hernia specialists that have come up in these forums and elsewhere are:
– Dr Andrew Wright at UW Seattle
– Dr Rebecca Petersen in Seattle
– Dr Robert Wright in Washington
– Dr Paul Dally in Washington
– Dr Robert Martindale at OHSU
– Dr Sean Orenstein at OHSU
– Dr William Brown in Palo Alto
– Dr Shirin Towfigh in Los Angeles
– Dr David Chen at UCLA
– Dr Bob Burns in Newport Beach
There are likely others as well. Good luck and keep us updated on your case.
