Dr. Reinhorn recently repaired a recurrent inguinal hernia. He and his team are superb -- I couldn't have asked for better care. He is not only a skilled surgeon, but has carefully though the process of hernia surgery -- from initial evaluation and explanation of options, to the procedure and follow-up. He's creating an effective and efficient American version of what is done at Canada's Shouldice Hospital. I recommend him without reservation.

Full and complete information of the procedure, pre-op and post-op. I was very comfortable with the initial consultation with both Dr. Reinhorn and Lauren. I had a couple of questions prior to my two week follow up and was given detailed and appropriate answers. I would highly recommend the practice. My parting words with Dr. Reinhorn was that I would never have to see him again, shared with a nice laugh.

I had hernia repair surgery with Dr. Reinhorn on May 10 2021 and would not hesitate to recommend him. He is extremely approachable has excellent bedside manners, and patiently listens to your concerns before answering questions completely. I traveled from Connecticut as I was interested in finding a surgeon that concentrated on hernia repair. This was my third hernia surgery, my first with Dr. Reinhorn, and by far the least painful (only took Advil for pain relief) and I was mostly pain free within 7 days. His staff is professional and attentive with followup calls to monitor my post operative progress. I could not be more satisfied. A five star plus service!

Dr. Reinhorn performed a hernia operation on me , April 31, 2021, at the Newton Wellsley Hospital. Dr. Reinhorn, Lauren and the rest of the team were superb; my experience exceeded my expectations both for process and outcome. Dr. Reinhorn was professional, competent and kind. I had very little pain and no need for any narcotics. I can unequivocally recommend Dr. Rinehart for hernia treatment.

Dr. Reinhorn and Dr. Lauren Ott is excellent people. Dr. Reinhorn performs Shouldice repair on my inguinal hernia on March 11th, right now 2 months post surgery and I feels great. I am glad I am able to return to my regular activity. He ,also, performs non mesh repair on my Umbilical hernia that did not close since I born, and it is not fully healed, that is what I can expect from non mesh repair. Overall I am satisfied with their knowledge and performs.

Dr. Reinhorn Is a wonderful doctor and he has a great team. The pre-op nurse I spoke to before my surgery called him the Master Jedi of Hernia Repair. I was a little bit skeptical about the recovery process before the surgery. But that worry was trivial. I had my hernia repair with mesh two weeks ago, and I am already walking around pain free 14 days after the procedure. Recovery is faster than I have expected, ( a lot of information indicated other types of repair require a recover timeframe of 2 to 4 month). In my case, with Dr. Reinhorn’s method, I was able to walk around in the house that afternoon after the surgery and able to walk two miles four days afterward. The entire experience with Dr. Reinhorn and his team are great. I have already recommended him to a family friend.

I would recommend Dr Reinhorn to family and friends. As a matter of fact I did give Dr Reinhorn's contact information to a friend who has an Inguinal Hernia and will eventually want to get it taken care of. My experience was better than expected. I had the surgery on Friday morning and by Saturday I was going up and down stairs and able to comfortably sit and read a good book. I only took over the counter meds for two days.

I had my inguinal hernia surgery done by Dr. Reinhorn at the Newton Wellesley Hospital in July 2020. Everything went well and I did not experience any pain after the surgery. I was back to playing golf 2 weeks after the operation. Highly recommended.

Excellent care in EVERY aspect. Not only Dr. Reinhorn but equally his assistant and all other staff. The smaller scale hospital where he operates is perfect for this kind of outpatient surgery. Six months post surgery perfect function without any mobility limitation. This is written by a physician with general surgery background.

Dr Reinhorn did a wonderful job repairing my large groin hernia (direct inguinal). I had him use the Shouldice Technique which is a non-mesh procedure. This procedure returns you to where you were before you had a hernia. In my case, I was sore after surgery and didn't feel better until 5 days later. After a month, I felt perfectly normal like I never had a hernia. After 6 months my stomach wall contour had returned to normal and the surgical scar had mostly disappeared.
