A hernia is a painful bulge caused in the abdomen when intestines or soft tissue protrude through weaknesses in the muscular wall that normally protects them. Even though they can seem to come out of nowhere, they won’t go away without medical attention. The team at Surgical Specialists of Greater NY treats hernias with a quick, surgical procedure, often using robotic assistance to ensure maximum precision. There are three New York City offices in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Astoria area of Queens, and Bayside neighborhood in Flushing.
