Patient Reviews
Aug 09, 2023
I've never had surgery before and Dr. Jacob took the time to go over all of the details & options. He visited & reassured me the morning of the operation and performed a robotic laparoscopic hernia repair with mesh. I experienced nominal pain after the surgery & returned home that afternoon. After only 2 pain pills with ice in the first 15 hours, I was able to control the pain with ibuprofen/acetminophen for the next two days. I was up walking and caring for myself within 2 1/2 days. My follow up visit with Dr. Jacob was only 6 days later because he scheduled the surgery around my active schedule. Everything is healing well & I drove myself to the appointment. At Day 6, I only needed 2 Advil after several drives, walking for 30 minutes, climbing 4 sets of stairs, & working in my office until 7pm. His office nurse, Maria, was also a pleasure before & after the operation. The nurses & anesthesiologist at East Jefferson Out Patient Surgery were top notch. Highly Recommended!
