Experts in Complex Hernia
Acute care surgeons at Upstate, who have extensive trauma experience, have developed expertise in complex hernia repair, explains Moustafa Hassan, MD , director of Acute Care Surgery at Upstate.
Hernias develop when part of an organ protrudes from the wall of the cavity where it is contained. A fistula is an abnormal connection between hollow or tubular organs or the body surface.
