It is often said that no surgeon truly knows his own hernia recurrence rate. How do you know what you are doing is working if you're not keeping track?
The Americas Hernia Society aims to fix just that with the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative or AHSQC. The quality collaborative is a database created by hernia surgeons that enables them to keep track of their performance, patient outcomes and complications. It also allows us to come together to pool our data to add significance and meaning to the numbers.
It is not research and nothing we do is experimental. It is merely a tool to make good surgeons better.
Participating in the AHSQC is completely optional with no obligation. There is no requirement to participate in order to have your hernia repaired.
While still practicing general surgery, Dr. Glover is now focused primarily on hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction. In conjunction with Austin Surgeons, Dr. Glover is now practicing as the Austin Hernia Center. See more details on AustinHerniaCenter.com.
The vast majority of hernia surgery is feasible through a minimally invasive approach. You may have been told that you are not a candidate for minimally invasive surgery based on previous abdominal surgery, previous prostatectomy or weight. Some patients or some hernias may be better off performed with traditional open surgery. While certainly not everyone is a candidate for minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Glover performs the vast majority of hernia surgery through small laparoscopic or robotic incisions. Schedule a consultation today to see if you're eligible for minimally invasive hernia surgery.
