Hernia surgery is highly recommended for patients suffering from a hernia. A hernia, which occurs when an internal organ pushes through the surrounding muscle and tissue, can lead to significant, disruptive pain and obstruct the flow of blood to the intestines. Furthermore, the discomfort caused by hernias can limit physical activity and prevent you from doing what you love. Many patients opt to have their hernia diagnosed and treated immediately, while others prefer a “watch and wait” approach. Dr. Whalen Clark, MD, FACS, can help patients choose the right surgical approach for their needs.

Less pain following surgery
Reduced blood loss from surgery
Dr. Clark uses cutting-edge surgical methods and technologies to drastically improve patient outcomes and reduce recovery times. With minimally invasive hernia surgery, patients can often resume light activity in as little as one or two weeks. Generally, complete recovery times take anywhere from four to eight weeks depending on the patient’s medical history.
