The Mile High Hernia Institute is Located in Denver, Colorado
It was created to recognize a subspecialty of General Surgery dedicated exclusively to outpatient hernia surgery.
A General Surgeon can spend a typical day addressing a very wide variety of surgical problems including trauma, cancer, thoracic, vascular, colon and rectal, breast, endocrine, head and neck, and abdominal surgeries of all varieties. Indeed, the General Surgeon arguably has the broadest and most comprehensive of all medical specialties. After 20 years of General Surgery, Dr. Macdonald created Mile High Hernia Institute to provide patients the option of having a Hernia Surgeon, specifically focused on just one aspect of this comprehensive training.
