Dr.Jacob is an extremely competent surgeon. He thoroughly explained the entire procedure and has followed up with me for the past five years. Hopefully, I won't need surgery again, but if I should this is where I would definitely go. When necessary I always recommend Dr. Jacob to anyone who needs an excellent surgeon.

I approached Dr. Jacob to consult whether repair of my inguinal hernia with absorbable mesh was a viable option. It was not; he opined that a lap surgery with a regular mesh would be the best choice for my big hernia, assuming I can take a gen. anesthesia. Earlier I was considering traveling across the country to have a Desarda repair, but Dr. Jacobs confidence, his apparent competence and support made me trust his expertise and I am glad I did. The surgery was scheduled about three weeks later; his staff was very hepful. Of course, the general was not a piece of cake for me, (I am 64 and had a heart attack in the past), however, the rest was extremely easy: no painkilling pills was needed (not even one); the next day I easily walked four miles along the beach, and three days before the week was over I found myself running intervals for about 25 min. each (I dont remember Dr. Jacob making any restriction on running). This is a sharp contrast with unfortunate post-op experience of some other patients posted on numerous Message Boards, so I am greateful to be a patient of Dr. Jacob. Vlad
