Most people believe you can avoid
a hernia by staying fit and active.

Although this has proven to be beneficial in the prevention of hernias, we are all susceptible regardless of fitness level. If left untreated, hernias can lead to dangerous even life-threatening complications.

Hernia specialists provide cutting-edge surgical procedures, including advanced robotic surgery, to better improve the repair and recovery of a hernia. Most hernias are repaired with a minimally invasive procedure at an outpatient center, allowing patients to go home the same day.

Our hernia specialists are board-certified, with almost 30 years of experience in Hernia treatments. They are pioneers in the latest robotic and laparoscopic procedures, and treat all types of hernias, including inguinal, hiatal, ventral, epigastric, femoral and umbilical They are respected among their peers and in the community, and have consistently won numerous awards based on patient reviews from a variety of organizations, including Healthgrades, Vitals and Pasadena Magazine.

Although they are experts in their field and have been called upon to serve in leadership and teaching positions at top medical schools, their primary focus remains patient care. Our hernia specialists are professional, confident physicians who will make themselves your partner on this journey to a better, healthier you. They are compassionate, kind, caring and will take time to talk to you about your condition in order to find the best possible treatment. Their mission is to provide patients with a safe and comfortable environment and get a full patient history to provide the most accurate and effective treatment options for each individual patient.
