    Hi Dr. Towfigh,

    I am currently gathering all my medical information to make a trip out to Beverly Hills and I wanted to ask a question whether you would have to perform an open procedure on me as if have a pelvic kidney. I have had two prior laparoscopic surgeries (cholecystectomy and Nissen Fundoplication) and one open procedure (partial take-down of the Nissen to a Toupet). I currently believe I have bilateral hernias with one be femoral. I just wanted to get ideas prior to traveling to CA from VA.

    Thank you so kindly.

    Can do these laparoscopically if that is in your best interest.

    Looking forward to seeing you.
