Our Team

Hernia Center Co-Directors Andrew Bates, MD, Sami Khan, MD, and Michael Paccione, MD, lead a team of board-certified physicians. We bring hernia surgeons together with reconstructive plastic surgeons for specialized treatment and follow-up. The result is relief for our patients, with minimal post-op discomfort and a low rate of hernia recurrence.

For those who feel chronic groin pain after inguinal hernia surgery — and it is estimated that at least 10 percent of patients experience this problem — our pain management specialists provide solutions.

Our team also includes weight loss specialists who guide patients through surgical and non-surgical treatments. This is important, because having a reasonable weight contributes to the success of hernia repair.

Our administrative staff will welcome you to your appointments and make sure that you are seen promptly.
