At the Hernia Center of Southern California, we are hernia surgeons, with the experience of over 25 years and 12,000 surgeries. First and foremost we take into consideration the individual needs of each patient. Our proprietary surgical techniques allow us to test and maximize the strength of each hernia repair before the procedure is complete. This ensures the hernia is fixed properly the first time.
If you suspect a patient might have a hernia, contact the Hernia Center immediately. We do our best to accommodate patients within a 24-hour period. We have eight convenient office locations throughout Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, making it easy for your patients to be seen in a timely manner, and at a location best suited to them. Rest assured your patients will appreciate knowing they are being seen by not only hernia specialists, but the best available Southern California resource.
In our meeting with the patient, we examine them to determine whether or not the hernia is work-related. We then determine where the liability for the injury lies – with the employer or the employee. By identifying non-work related hernias and other abdominal injuries, we are able to decrease patient worker’s compensation abuses early and effectively.
If the patient is diagnosed with a hernia, surgery can be scheduled and performed within 24 hours, if needed, even in non-emergency situations. Our rehabilitation program begins the first day after surgery, at no additional cost to the employee or employer. We are able to effectively educate our patients on body mechanics so they learn how to properly lift, stretch, push, bend, etc. We have found this is not only beneficial in the long run, but allows our patients to return to work sooner, with less disability, resulting in increased productivity.
Statistically, Hernia Center of Southern California patients return to work sooner; thus we are able to save you money by minimizing time lost from work. Our dual goal is to evaluate injured workers quickly and to perform surgeries at the earliest possible time. Expert surgeons and surgical techniques, along with our early rehabilitation program, results in workers returning to modified work within one week of surgery and customary work within two weeks.
Many hernias, not to mention other injuries, can often be prevented by understanding body mechanics; while others can be prevented with the help of assisted lifting machines. Early intervention with workers experiencing groin pain helps to prevent hernias and other injuries before they occur.
