Boston Hernia was founded to take care of patients with inguinal and umbilical hernias. We see almost 2000 new patients each year with suspected hernia conditions and we repair almost 1000 hernias each year. We operate on patients with symptomatic hernias, and avoid diagnostic imaging much of the time. 

By creating a specialized clinic, we have moved on from the traditional general surgery model allowing us to focus exclusively on one surgical problem and become international experts in it, providing the very best care to our patients.  

Decades of focus has led our practice to virtually eliminate the dreaded problem of chronic postoperative inguinal hernia pain. We perform better, safer surgery more efficiently than most providers and have had our outcomes reviewed by our peers and published in journals.


Our providers used to do all of general surgery, including breast surgery, colon surgery, appendix removal and gallbladder surgery, but we found that the more we focused on hernia surgery, the better our patients fared. Over the last 22 years, we have been caring for hernia patients, listening to their needs and goals, and adapting our practice to best serve our patients. It seems obvious now that a specialized practice provides better and more individualized patient care, which is our ultimate goal with this unique practice.

We are focused on providing superior outcomes that are important to our patients, including:
