Dr. Reinhorn was recently interviewed by Kristy Lee of Boston NBC Chanel 10.  She asked some very insightful questions about the approach we use to inguinal hernia repair. Kristy shows an actual bicycle tire, in order to explain the differences between the way we fix a hernia and the way most surgeons repair a hernia.
