    Hello all.

    I just wanted to add to the many comments on this forum about Dr. Brown.

    I went to his website and found alot of good information. I sent him an email telling him about my situation and he actually called me the next day. I was at work and not able to answer the phone so he left a message. The next day the same thing happened but he also sent me an email. I responded to his email and minutes later he called me a 3rd time.

    I was blown away that such a successful and busy doctor had time to call a random person who emailed him about a hernia.

    If I was in California and not Texas he would be the first doctor I went to.

    If I do not find a good no-mesh doctor in Texas I may travel out to have him fix me up.

    What an awesome guy!!!

    I’ve read many stories that Dr Brown is very responsive and highly engaged with patients both before and after surgeries. Likewise I’ve read similar stories with the physicians at Vincera Institute in Philadelphia, Dr Grischkan in Ohio, Dr Brian Jacobs in NYC, and many others frequently mentioned on these forums. It’s good to know that some of the specialist clinics out there are personable and old-school in their approach to interacting with patients.

    As for a traditional hernia repair in Texas, if you seeking a no-mesh hernia surgeon, you might try reaching out to:

    – Dr. John Etlinger in San Antonio, Texas

    You would want to confirm that independently however, and see if the no-mesh repair procedure is appropriate for your case.

    Other no-mesh surgeons vaguely nearby in the Southwest:

    – Dr Zafar Parvez in New Mexico

    – Dr Kevin Petersen in Nevada

    And in California there are a handful of no-mesh options as well, of course there is Dr William Brown who you found, as well as Dr Shirin Towfigh in Los Angeles, Dr Edward Phillips in Los Angeles, and Dr Robert Burns in Newport Beach.

    Again, you will want to consult with surgeons directly, and do your own research to see what makes sense for you.

    Best of luck and keep us updated on your case! And you go through with the surgery with any doctor, please share your experience.
