Making a Referral

Referring physicians will receive continuous communication provided by the surgeon at Kent Hospital. The goal is to keep patients and physicians comfortable, yield exceptional outcomes, and create a patient-centered experience that is positive for each individual choosing to get their care at The Hernia Program at Care New England.

The Hernia Program at Care New England however, offers you several advantages.

Experience

Our surgeons are all board certified, including those fellowship trained specifically for hernia repair and the management of complex abdominal wall defects using the latest minimally-invasive (laparoscopic and robotic) techniques, in addition to more traditional forms of surgery.

Collaboration

We are focused on shorter hospital stays, less pain, and a faster return to work with fewer post-operative complications. We use subspecialty services such as plastic surgery, bariatric surgery, and anesthesia pain management to enhance your recovery, focusing on you as an entire person, not just your hernia. We look at nutrition, weight, and advocate smoking cessation to decrease post-operative complications and improve your overall health.

Outcomes

We participate in the American Hernia Society Quality Collaborative, a national database allowing us to track and compare our outcomes nationally.

Quality

Our Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocol is designed specifically for hernia patients, concentrating solely on decreasing post-operative pain and improving patient satisfaction. We also provide long-term follow-up, ensuring positive results while helping us monitor the enduring quality of our services.

Cutting Edge

We offer the most up-to-date hernia repair techniques. Many hernias can be repaired with new robotic techniques that most hospitals don’t offer. The Hernia Center of New England has highly-specialized surgeons utilizing these various techniques, each with their own unique benefits.
