    Patient Comments (1)
    Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr. Hovenga performed an inguinal hernia surgery on my husband over 15 years ago. It was a botched surgery that left my husband with chronic burning pain in his groin and inner thigh. My husband has since had 8 surgeries and countless injections and other treatments to try to help his pain. Dr Hovenga took no responsibility for any of this. My husband has continued to work with pain, unfortunately with pain meds, a peripheral nerve stimulator is next step
