    43yr old male, in good shape (working out created the problem!) need hernia repair but want no mesh. Looking for someone who is experienced in the Shouldice Repair method used in Canada.

    I know nothing about the practice. Look at http://www.bostonhernia.com they offer Shouldice repair. That might be as close as you can get.

    It may be difficult to find a Shouldice practitioner in Connecticut, as it is challenging to find no-mesh hernia repair practitioners in general. A few options that are fairly close to you:

    – Dr Samer Sbayi at Stony Brook in Long Island, New York trained at Shouldice and has apparently performed the procedure many hundreds of times

    – Shouldice Hospital in Toronto Canada

    A few other options for no mesh hernia surgery on the east coast are:

    – Dr William Meyers at Vincera Institute in Philadelphia PA

    – Dr Alexander Poor at Vincera Institute in Philadelphia PA

    I am not sure what specific no mesh repair technique(s) are used at Vincera, but they are well known in athletic communities.

    There are likely some other North Eastern USA specific non mesh hernia surgeons as well, perhaps other forum users can chime in with what they know.

    Good luck and keep us updated on your progress and decision making.
