I went to see Dr. Kaplan regarding hernia repair. After we discussed the repair surgery and methods, we scheduled my surgery the following week. The method of repair was using the laparoscopy procedure. From the minute I woke from the anesthesia to this day, I have "not" had any pain or side affects from the surgery. I literally walked out the recovery room and got into my truck (passenger side). Dr. Kaplan and his staff are very friendly, informative, and truly professional. Dr. Kaplan is a gifted surgeon.
