Has anyone come up with a list of questions to ask your surgeon or some kind of checklist before choosing a surgeon? There is a lot of good info on this site but it takes a lot of looking around. Although I’m not having any issues with my hernia i’m pretty sure eventually I will have to get it fixed. A list like this would be golden. Thanks
How many different procedures (tissue repair vs. mesh; lap vs. open) do you do and how do you determine which to use?
If you primarily perform mesh repairs, what kind do you use, and how much?
How many repairs of each type have you done this past year?
Do you allow residents to participate in your operations, and to what extent?
What’s your recurrence rate?
Do you do imaging in advance to plan for the surgery and choose the appropriate procedure?
