Patients

Hernias are a very common health problem, with more than 1 million hernia repairs performed in the United States each year. What makes Stony Brook Medicine’s Comprehensive Hernia Center unique is our team’s multidisciplinary approach to hernia care.

Not only that, as part of an academic medical center, we are dedicated to making hernia care better. This is what distinguishes us from other surgeons in our community.

We offer the full range of effective treatment options, including minimally invasive surgical options, consult with other team members to develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient, and work with plastic surgeons and pain management specialists to help ensure recovery with minimal scarring, pain and complications.

Our team is here to answer your questions and make your experience as comfortable as possible. Please take a few minutes to read through our site to familiarize yourself with our services and approach. To arrange for a consultation/appointment with our hernia specialists, please call (631) 638-0054.
