Dr. Polecritti is a board certified general surgeon as well as a plastic surgeon and has repaired countless ventral, umbilical, incisional, and inguinal hernias. In some instances, problematic healing and scarring results in a limited amount of tissue for traditional hernia repair. In such cases, plastic surgical training may be of benefit in order to increase available tissue through the use of flaps, grafts and complex separation of nearby structures.
Reconstructive plastic surgeons frequently work along side general surgeons to assist each other when treating a patient who has a complicated wound or hernia. We would be happy to discuss your particular case, please call us for a consultation.
