Serving patients from New York City, Westchester and surrounding areas since 1979, Riverdale Hernia Center in the Bronx, NY is a surgical practice dedicated to the treatment of patients with abdominal hernias as well as associated complex abdominal wall problems.
"Our approach is one that provides our patients with the best results utilizing state of the art surgery combined with the individualized attention that only an expert surgeon can provide."
"Over the years, as I cared for patients with a broad range of abdominal surgical problems, I've treated many suffering from abdominal wall hernias including some with fistulas.
For some the problem was a recurring one. They had undergone an operation, but weren't cured; their hernias and fistulas persisted and their surgeons told them to leave well-enough alone.
In some cases I felt that these patients had been given good advice but in other cases I was able to intervene and cure them.
Abdominal wall problems can be complex. The treatment may be time and labor intensive, sometimes requiring multiple procedures. The operations can be technically difficult and fraught with possible complications. Judgment is critical. Some surgeons may feel they lack the needed skills or they may decide they do not want to invest the time and effort these cases require.
I believe such patients deserve better.”
