Acclaimed Hernia Surgeon Dr. Towfigh Reduces Surgical Risk

Though rare, an infection after hernia operation can be life-altering -the expert treatment of Dr. Shirin Towfigh at the Beverly Hills Hernia Center can help cure infection complications.

LOS ANGELES, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As the lead surgeon at the Beverly Hills Hernia Center, Dr. Shirin Towfigh is a world-class expert in diagnosing hernia symptoms in men, women and children, but many are unaware of her true talents. In fact, Dr. Towfigh is the only surgeon in the Western U.S. who has been entirely dedicated to treating all types of hernia pain. This is why patients in need of an emergency hernia operation increasingly choose Dr. Towfigh as their surgeon. They know that she is the most experienced in treating infected hernia mesh that can negatively affect one's health.

Surgical mesh is a surgical implant that is used to provide additional support to weakened or damaged muscle. Most surgical mesh are made from synthetic materials, and some from animal or human cadaver tissue. Surgical mesh runs a risk of infection. Fortunately, hernia mesh infections are rare – occurring in less than 1% of patients. However, when such rare infections occur, it is important that you seek the expertise of a specialist, such as Dr. Towfigh, who has handled hundreds of complicated mesh infection situations.

Dr. Towfigh reduces risks for infection prior to submitting her patients to hernia repair.  Individuals who run a higher risk of infection include users of tobacco, those with diabetes, any patient who is overweight or obese, and those with a history of past infection in the area of the hernia. Dr. Towfigh works with her patients to reduce or control these risk factors prior to her treatment, ensuring the best results possible.    

Since a hernia operation is typically elective, an appointment at the Beverly Hills Hernia Center can be scheduled in advance. However, in some cases, a patient may require an emergency operation. For instance, if a patient is suffering from an incarcerated or strangulated hernia, which can lead to loss of blood flow, immediate surgical attention is necessary. As with any emergency treatment, the stakes can be very high in emergency hernia surgery, making the impeccable skill and precision of Dr. Towfigh a great relief for her patients. 

Dr. Towfigh tailors her techniques to the needs of her patients, thereby reducing the risk of complications, including infection, when emergency treatment is required. In fact, she was celebrated as Clinical Champion for her work in the most successful surgical site infection reduction campaign for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Among other methods, Dr. Towfigh's one-of-a-kind emergency hernia care includes:

  • Encouraging patients to wash thoroughly the night before surgery, with certain antibacterial soaps if possible
  • Keeping the patient warm
  • Re-dosing necessary antibiotics if the operation lasts longer than 4 hours
  • Careful handling of tissue to reduce injury and reduce recovery period
  • Minimal use of synthetic product
  • Daily wound probing in cases of contaminated tissue
  • Use of staged procedure in situations of infected abdominal wall or mesh

The discomfort and hindered movement that can occur when one suffers from a hernia can be frustrating and painful. Thanks to the advances in hernia medicine and her caring, expert treatment, it is easy to see why Dr. Towfigh has become one of the nation's most respected hernia doctors. If you or a loved one is in search of treatment for a hernia with a reduced risk of infection, you can contact Dr. Towfigh at 310-358-5020, or learn more about her approach to hernias via her website at www.BeverlyHillsHerniaCenter.com.
