Gibsonia, PA |
Dr Biskin is the expert hernia surgeon who can do what most other surgeons can't. He is one of the most experienced hernia doctors is the country who treats celebrities and other doctors. He was referred to me by an operating room nurse who told me she had never seen such precise surgery. I had no pain after the operation and my scars are barely visible.

He removed my gall bladder. Really professional and friendly, informative and helpful, even after surgery.

Outstanding surgeon. I have had an excellent result with a one complicated hernia issue and one smaller hernia. I have recommended his services to several people who have had excellent results as well.
