Hernia Center

Each year, more than 5 million people in the United States are treated for hernias – that’s why we’ve established the Hurley Hernia Center of Excellence, the only one in the region.

The Right Treatment Tailored for You

We are the experts in developing effective, minimally invasive procedures based on each patient’s individual needs.

Rather than utilizing the same mesh product for all hernias, we select the precise product at the time of surgery that is best suited for each patient. This selection process, which is the foundation for our patient-specific approach, is based on our extensive experience as a result of performing a multitude of hernia repairs each year. This expertise in both routine and complex hernia surgeries assures that all of our patients receive the safest and most effective repair available.
