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.
