Dr. Gawel performed my hernia repair June 8th, 2018. I had nausea and vomiting 2-3 times a week with heartburn for years before the surgery. Other Dr.s had diagnosed me with GERD and prescribed different heartburn medications and lifestyle changes which I followed through on. Nothing seemed to help. Finally went to Dr. Gawel, had the surgery and have been feeling great for over a year with absolutely no vomiting. Thanks to Dr. Gawel for being a wonderful surgeon. I feel like a brand new person. He is a very kind and gifted surgeon whom I would recommend highly to anyone seeking help for digestive problems.
