Hernias are one of the most common conditions that are treated with surgery in the United States. A hernia is caused by a tear or stretching of the muscles of the groin or abdomen. The tear leaves a small hole that allows for the organs inside your abdomen to slide in and out, resulting in a bulge that is sometimes painful.
If you are one of the many patients who has put off hernia repair surgery because you think you can’t afford it, delay no longer. We believe that hernia repair surgery costs are too high, especially for patients without insurance. Dr. Weiner has worked with a local surgery center to keep costs down allowing him to provide hernia surgery for one low cost fee. There are even payment options available for a portion of the cost.
Typically, hospitals charge very high fees for even minor surgical procedures, despite insurance companies often paying only 10% of the charged amount. However, when an uninsured patient needs surgery, he or she is forced to pay the exorbitant fees because, as an individual, they are unable to negotiate with the hospital for a reasonable rate. This practice is unfair and penalizes hardworking people who make too much money to qualify for Medicaid, but not enough to afford the high costs of health insurance. Often times, a hernia is preventing you from working, worsening an already difficult situation. Dr. Weiner is well aware of the injustice of our current healthcare system and has worked to be able to offer a high quality, safe hernia surgery at an affordable cost by a board certified, experienced surgeon.
Dr. Weiner offers initial consultations for hernia surgery for $250, however, this payment will be applied to the cost of your surgery if you proceed. Dr. Weiner will work with you to pick the proper hernia repair procedure so that you can get back to your life and family with the least amount of recovery time and without incurring tens of thousands of dollars of unnecessary costs.

Laparoscopic Inguinal (groin) (one side): $5,700
– The advantage of a more expensive laparoscopic hernia repair is less post-operative pain and faster healing.
Dr. Weiner provides laparoscopic surgical repair for hernias, reducing scarring and recovery time. The technology necessary to perform this surgery is more sophisticated, explaining the higher cost. Most patients who have laparoscopic hernia surgery are moving around without difficult just a few hours after surgery and often don’t need to take prescription pain medication. Some large hernias are not amenable to laparoscopic repair – Dr. Weiner will make this determination at your initial visit. A laparoscopic hernia repair is NOT safer or more effective than an open hernia surgery, it just results in less pain postoperatively.
