Excellent Surgeon. I had a inguinal hernia for many years and did not get it fixed because I was nervous about surgery. After I met Dr Zhang I felt confident he was the right surgeon. He fixed it robotically through small incisions. I had no pain after the surgery and was back to work after only 2 days.
