Welcome to Boston Hernia, a specialty clinic completely dedicated to the diagnosis, repair, and recovery of hernias. Our focus is on providing each patient with personalized care that results in fast recoveries and incredible outcomes. We’re committed to helping you get back to your everyday life faster. Since 2001, Dr. Michael Reinhorn and staff have been committed to hernias and advancing surgical care to treat the disorder using innovative techniques including the Fast Recovery Inguinal Hernia Repair, one of its kind. We don't accept a 5-15% incidence of chronic pain after hernia surgery, and neither should you.
DR. REINHORN EXPLAINS INGUINAL HERNIA REPAIR TECHNIQUE
The advanced open pre-peritoneal inguinal hernia repair that Dr. Reinhorn performs allows for faster hernia surgery recovery than many other types of inguinal hernia surgery. Patients report less pain in the post-operative period. Many patients return to normal activity within a few days of their hernia surgery and return to full physical activity within a couple of weeks. Patients leave the hospital a couple hours after surgery to continue recovery from home.
LEARN ABOUT UMBILICAL HERNIA SURGERY
We perform minimally invasive surgery to repair an umbilical/ventral hernia. This involves making a small incision in your abdomen in order to gain access to your hernia or hernias. A piece of mesh is placed inside your abdomen in order to repair the hernia defect from the inside. The end result of this umbilical/ventral hernia repair is identical to laparoscopic hernia repair, but the procedure is less invasive. There is less dissection involved and local anesthesia with sedation is often used instead of general anesthesia, leading to a quicker recovery.
