    "The overall experience was excellent. The doctor was very engaging and took time to explain the issue (gallstones resulting in removal of the gallbladder by means of laparscopic surgery). The surgery was scheduled promptly and performed very well in my opinion as a layman. My recovery so far (5th day) has been excellent, but keep in mind that I'm a healthy 28 year old male with the vital readings, EKG and blood panel showing above average results. I would highly recommend this practice to a friend. "

    "This was the second time that I've visited your office. This was a follow-up from an operation that I've received from Dr. Ginsberg. I was very impressed with the texting notification reminder of my appointments.
    Your staff was extremely friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. I was also very impressed with the care that I received from Dr. Ginsberg.
    While I hope that I never have to see you again, I would not hesitate to visit your office and use you for procedures that I may have.
    Thank you very much for the great care.
    Ron Carlson.
    P.s. I have no problem with my comments being public.

Typically, pain after a routine inguinal hernia repair should gradually subside and be gone or of minimal concern by 4-6 weeks after surgery. The scarring process can cause tightness in the groin area that is described by many patients as pain when their activity forces this area to stretch. Usually stretching exercises applied progressively a month or more after surgery will loosen the area enough that this tightness subsides. It is more often a complaint of young athletic people than older and/or obese individuals most likely because they tend to expect more of their bodies and this "limitation" is more pronounced for them. As was stated by some of the other doctors, there are other pain issues related to nerves in the area that may require further intervention. At 5 months after surgery, I would recommend a follow-up with your surgeon or a second opinion to address this.
