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.
