      I would recommend Dr. Vernava for rectal surgery only. He saved my husband's life in 2008 and again in 2014. However, at that time he said there should be no more surgeries. My husband developed an incisional hernia after that and in 2015, Dr. Vernava said he could fix it. He never gave us any warnings of what might occur and lied to our daughter when she called and questioned him. My husband went downhill after that, had blockages and more hernias. He never recovered and died this year 2016

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
