Levi S. Kirkland Jr., M.D., FACS

Our goal is to offer an open and comfortable environment to discuss your hernia problem and to formulate a treatment plan designed to satisfy your needs.

The practice was created with the specific intention of offering answers to our patients regarding common hernia problems. Time is taken to be assured that the patient fully understands the nature of the problem and the operative approach best suited to take care of the problem.  Our clear objective is to provide the best HERNIA CARE surgically possible.
