  • South Jersey/Philadelphia Surgeons for hernias

    Posted by bellaitalia on October 25, 2016 at 4:39 pm

    I have 2 hernias; umbilical and ventral. I am looking for a general surgeon specializing in hernias. I was hoping to have them via laparoscopic surgery as I read recovery is quicker. Who is the best in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area? And is laparoscopic the best route?

    Not sure if Dr Goodyear does this type of hernia surgery or lap style surgery. He is in the Philly area. I would carefully vet any surgeon even if listed on the American Hernia Society. It is a starting point. The doctors on the AHS list in my area are General Surgeons that do very few hernia surgeries each but are quote experts.
