Abdominal wall problems can be complex. The treatment may be time and labor intensive, sometimes requiring multiple procedures. The operations can be technically difficult and fraught with possible complications. Judgment is critical. Some surgeons may feel they lack the needed skills or they may decide they do not want to invest the time and effort these cases require. I believe such patients deserve better.
