    Is there a “best” surgeon or hospital in the US? I do not mind traveling but want the best outcome.

    I have not had my repair yet, and I think there are several surgeons who contribute to this board who would be great. I talked to Dr. Brown and I would be very comfortable going to him based on our coversations and the feedback he has given. I like that he specializes in no mesh hernia. Alas, travel expenses and no insurance with him makes that not feasible for me but if I had greater means, that’s what I would do.
