Dr Hurwitz is one of the best surgeons you will ever find. Very knowledgeable, very approachable and very friendly. Dr Hurwitz did my thyroid surgery and not only is he highly skilled but his bed side manner is fantastic! I would recommend Dr Hurwitz to anyone and wouldn't hesitate to have him perform any surgery I may ever need.

Dr. Hurwitz performed emergency surgery in my elderly mother. Everything went perfectly. Dr. Hurwitz was professional, compassionate, and charming. We are very grateful.

Dr. Hurwitz says...

I am a general surgeon with subspecialty training in advanced "minimally invasive" surgery. I have been performing laparoscopic hernia repairs in Newport Beach since 1998, and now conduct many of these operations using the DaVinci robotic technology.  Other areas of interest include laparoscopic and robotic gallbladder and intestinal surgery, and thyroid and parathyroid surgery. In addition I serve as Medical Director of the Hoag Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center, where we treat patients with complex, difficult-to-heal wounds.
