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.

Hernia surgery is the best solution for those suffering from ongoing, disruptive pain

Reduced recovery and hospitalization times

Less pain following surgery

Reduced blood loss from surgery

Fewer complications

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.

Dr. Clark’s patient-centric approach to surgical treatment includes:

  • One-on-one consultation with patients that includes a physical exam, treatment recommendations, and a summary of test results
  • Taking every patient’s unique preferences, lifestyle, and diagnosis into account prior to recommending an effective treatment
  • Comprehensive post-operative care during the recovery process
  • Ample support for each patient as they transition back into an active lifestyle
