VERY HAPPY WITH DR. BRIAN JACOB!
I approached Dr. Jacob to consult whether repair of my inguinal hernia with absorbable mesh was a viable option. It was not; he opined that a lap surgery with a regular mesh would be the best choice for my big hernia, assuming I can take a gen. anesthesia. Earlier I was considering traveling across the country to have a Desarda repair, but Dr. Jacob’s confidence, competence, and support made me trust his expertise and I am glad I did. The surgery was scheduled about three weeks later; his staff was very helpful. No pain pills were needed (not even one); the next day I easily walked four miles along the beach, and three days before the week was over I found myself running intervals for about 25 min. each (I don’t remember Dr. Jacob making any restriction on running). I am grateful to be a patient of Dr. Jacob.
