Why Refer Your Complex Hernia Surgeries?

Until now, General Surgeons in Texas have had limited options when caring for patients with complex hernias and complicated abdominal wall issues.

These cases are often time-consuming for you, taxing on your practice, and can even require multiple surgeries for your patient.

You and your patient deserve a world-class abdominal specialist who’s passionate about helping and always a phone call away.

The Iskandar Complex Hernia Center is the only complex hernia and advanced abdominal-focused surgery center passionate about radically improving the quality of life for your patients with debilitating hernias.

In an era when renowned specialists who also care deeply about patients are hard to find, you can be confident when referring your patients to The Iskandar Complex Hernia Center.

Unparalleled Compassion

We understand that there are many issues associated with a complex hernia. Patients have questions and concerns which they are sometimes fearful to ask or address. Our listen-first approach is calming and ensures the patient has the most positive experience possible. We want to make sure our patients are educated and confident about their procedure and recovery while being armed with what is needed to have the most successful post-surgical lifestyle possible.

What Referring Surgeons Say

“Dr. Iskandar is a surgeon to call when other doctors run out of options for complex hernia patients. His toolbox is totally full. All the options are there with him. He’s always accepting of referrals. His answer is ‘yes’ and then he asks you about the case. That’s a remarkable asset when I feel helpless about referring my patient.”

“It’s a big relief to know that patients who need a complex procedure are in skilled hands with Dr. Iskandar. If it was me or my family member, I’d want a surgeon who does this once a week, not once a month, or less frequently. Not only do I not have to worry about my patient receiving excellent care, but the patient is going to receive a better outcome. Dr. Iskandar is the only surgeon outside the area that I’ve referred patients to.”

A Personal Note From Dr. Iskandar

Dr. Mazen Iskandar headshot hernia surgeonAs a fellow surgeon, I believe we all want to be less stressed, with fewer headaches, and more focused on our own specialty. We want more time for ourselves and our family, while being confident that each patient we treat has the best outcome possible.

Complex hernias are time-consuming and often complicated procedures with patients having extended post-operative stays in the hospital. They load general surgeons with higher risks and potential complications.

It is for this reason I founded the Iskandar Complex Hernia Center. I wanted to create a place for surgeons to refer their complex hernia patients with the confidence that each patient will be treated with unparalleled empathy and expertise. The Center extends my passion of focusing solely on complex hernia and abdominal wall repairs. I would love to be of service to you and your patients.

Thank you,
Dr. Mazen Iskandar
