I am writing to express my sincere thanks for an excellent surgery experience. The repair of my umbilical hernia was, by far, the best surgery I have ever had, due to the quick surgery, lack of pain and fast recovery — all without a single scar.

The staff at the Independence Surgery Center is second to none. They made my intake and discharge go smoothly. Your surgical expertise, coupled with the staff’s assistance, allowed me to walk next door for lunch directly after discharge on the day of surgery. The very next day, I went to a wedding reception. I never had to use any prescription pain medication; I only needed to take a few Advil.

In summary, you and the staff at the Independence Surgery Center have far exceeded my expectations. On a scale of 1 to 10, Hernia Center of Ohio would score a 10++. You are highly recommended.
