Meet the Surgeons
Extending the Continuum of Hernia Care
Recognizing the continuum of hernia care extends beyond office walls, a group of leading surgeons and TELA Bio worked together to develop abouthernia.com, a comprehensive educational resource to help patients navigate a treatment plan that aligns with their personal goals, preferences, and values.
Thanks to the rise of digital technology, patient education starts and continues well beyond the initial visit with health care providers. While it's great patients are taking a more proactive role, reducing the influence of misinformation is essential to alleviate anxiety and apprehension to ensure timely hernia care is delivered.
Through education, an empowered patient can be a health care providers greatest ally as they can work together to identify a more personalized approach to hernia treatment, which can lead to better long-term care and greater satisfaction.
When the standard of hernia care pre-dates the moon landing, it’s time to evolve. While advances in innovative implants, surgical techniques, and MIS technologies have made improvements to outcomes; health care providers must remain diligent in pioneering approaches that establish a new standard that are centered around patient empathy and forward progress.
