Comprehensive Hernia Center

The Comprehensive Hernia Center at Allegheny Health Network

At the Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Comprehensive Hernia Center, we offer high-quality, specialized care for hernias, including:

  • Abdominal wall hernias
  • Sports hernias
  • Groin hernias
  • Complex hernias

Our interprofessional team of experts meets the specific needs of each patient in a variety of surgical specialties that include general, plastic, and colorectal surgery. Whenever possible, we apply innovative, minimally invasive surgical techniques that speed recovery and reduce infection.

Preparing for surgery

A multidisciplinary team of doctors and clinicians will ensure you are healthy enough for surgery. To reduce your risk factors before and after surgery, this team may help you to:

  • Lose weight
  • Stop smoking
  • Improve your diabetes scores
  • Manage other health issues
