      in Calabasas, CA |
      Dr. Candela recently performed a robotic inguinal hernia surgery on me at Providence Medical Center in Tarzana, CA. He is an amazing surgeon. This was my first surgery ever. But I have to say, that II had very little discomfort after the procedure, and within 12 hours I was past the discomfort, and feeling like I was on the path to healing. I would highly recommend Dr. Candela to anyone!
      in Winnetka |
      My three experiences with Dr. Candela performing surgery were excellent. He is dedicated to his patients and ensures that they get the best care possible. I would recommend him to any family member, knowing they would be in the best care possible.

      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.
