Thank you for visiting us at HerniaRepair.ca. This site is created by Dr. David Konkin to help you to understand more about hernias and the surgical solutions available.

What is a hernia? How are they detected? How does one prepare for the operation? What is the recovery time? We will answer these and many other questions about umbilical, femoral, and inguinal hernias.

We hope that you find this information useful to make an informed decision concerning hernia repair.


*** Important to note, hernia repairs are part of the publicly funded Medical Services Plan (MSP).  No private options are available in BC.  If you would like to see Dr. Konkin, you just need a referral from your Family Doctor.
