Back in the late 90's my husband developed a triple hernia in his navel area. We went to a doctor, a specialist I wont name for now and has triple hernia surgery. My husband recalls hearing, while on the surgery table the surgen bless out one of his assistants for sewing him up before he was finished, so instead of cutting the freash stitches and completing the task he was not only paid to preform but discussed he would complete, he let it go and told us this lump still sticking from his navel was swelling, a swelling that never went away and ended my husband back in worse shape than when he started. That doctor wanted to put him back under the knife and slice him open again through his stomack till his navel, to re-open the first scar. We searched and found DR. Shaheen, Now let me tell you, Dr. Shaheen not only got him in his office quickly he also set up surgery just as fast. Dr. Shaheen did not reopen the nasty 3 inch scar to his navel as a matter of fact he was not happy that cut had been even made! He put 3 little holes on the side of his stomack so small you didnt even realize they were there and not only did he clean up the mess that doctor made of his insides he finished the job that doctor didnt. He then put in a new screen, One over the other. My husband is a good size man very active and strong, he exersizes and works and plays hard. Never once has he even had to worry about the triple hernia he once had ever popping back out also he has never had any complications from it. What Dr. Shaheen did, he did it right and not a temp fix, its one that is now 15 years old and still without complications. One of my son's called today to tell us he has developed a hernia in his navel area and had a doctor set up and I will tell you what, I pulled rank on him and sent him to who eles, none other than Dr Sam Shaheen because I know there he will get the treatment he needs and can rest assured it will be done right. Thanks Doc, we will forever be in your debt and will pass you along to any that might need you skill.
