Hernia Team

The board-certified general, gastrointestinaland plastic and reconstructive surgeons at Brigham and Women's Hospital perform thousands of simple and complex hernia operations each year. Our surgeons pioneered and continue to perfect the use of minimally invasive techniques that reduce post-surgical pain and speed recovery.  

Given the potential complications of hernias that are left untreated as well as the complexities involved in surgical repair, you should seek hernia specialists who:  

  • Have advanced surgical expertise 
  • Are skilled in preoperative planning 
  • Take a collaborative approach in the operating room, with surgeons from multiple disciplines on hand 
  • Are experienced in the latest techniques for pain control 

As part of their role at a major academic medical center, our surgeons keep up-to-date on and incorporate into their practice the latest advancements in hernia surgery. In some casesthey are even performing research that guides hernia care across the country and the world.
