You can go Dr. David Grischkan's website. I know someone who flew from Seattle years ago to have his repaird there at the Hernia Center of Ohio. He has a phone nume which is toll free and you can call him. I am being specific now, as I am not sure I would recommend him for his other hernia repairs but he did an excellent job on an umbilical hernia on a friend. It cost some money to go there but being about 8 years out, it looks like everything is well above average as the outcome.Can someone tell me where I can find information on umbilical hernias? I seem to find more on 'other' hernias, and not many on umbilical hernias. I had mine a year ago, no pain with it, but it is getting bigger and is ugly, and I don't want to keep it this way.
Would love to hear from someone else with one.
The friend of mine gave me the impression he uses different techniques depending on the circumstance.
Ohterwise, I am definately aware of someone having such a repair and failing shortly thereafter by someone on the East coast. I don't remember who the particular surgeon was.
Now, you did address this on a Parietex forum. I don't know if anyone uses Parietex mesh to do this. But I am sure some surgeons use this mesh.
