Dr. Lin has performed over 10,000 hernia surgeries
Hernia Surgery Taipei
Our clinic specializes in hernia repair: Our chief surgeon performs more than one thousand hernia surgeries each year, and has taken part in over ten thousand surgeries in Taiwan.
Our new techniques that are minimally invasive bring a high success rate to hernia repair and near-zero recurrence risk. This type of surgery only requires small incisions, reducing damage to healthy tissue and risk of post-surgery complications (such as chronic neuralgia and permanent numbness in skin etc.) Patients will heal faster, feel less pain, and be able to return to normal routines sooner.
This new minimally invasive surgery for hernia is very safe. Both the experienced surgeons and the correct procedures contribute to improving the safety of surgery, preventing unnecessary damage to tissues and avoiding post-surgery complications (such as recurrence, chronic neuralgia and permanent numbness in skin, etc.)
The best safety and comfort during anesthesia: Most hospitals use spinal anesthesia or general anesthesia with a breathing tube. We however, administer local anesthesia, which is safer, with no burden to the heart or lungs, and does not have the risks and complications of spinal or general anesthesia. We provide unique methods that control post-surgical pain, which will make the pain less severe and therefore, healing easier.
Even with just local anesthesia, we have a team of anesthesia specialists who supervise the entire surgical process, following procedures from the world’s leading center for hernia repair. This ensures patient safety. There is no pain and discomfort during the operation and minimal post-operative pain.
We have a comprehensive medical team that provides complicated procedures (such as those used for recurrent hernias or heavy patients) and safe surgical options for older or high-risk patients (such as those on dialysis, or suffering from heart disease, cirrhosis, hypertension, inadequate liver or kidney functions etc.)
We are the first in the world to perform this new minimally invasive surgery: With shorter recovery time and hospital stay, the repair is done through a 2-3 cm incision for male patients (4-7 cm is normal in traditional surgeries), and for female patients, 1.5cm (4-6 cm in most surgeries). Patients can be discharged on the same day or the following day, usually being able to return to work or school one day after the surgery.
We have a comprehensive team who customizes and implements your “personal treatment plan”: The team includes experienced hernia surgeons, physicians (for preoperative full-body assessment and postoperative care), anesthesiologists (anesthesia preoperative risk evaluation, monitored anesthesia care, sedation, and postoperative pain control), case managers (scheduling appointments, total care plan management, and following up on postoperative recovery), nurse practitioners, surgical team, hospital care team, physical therapists (postoperative rehabilitation), nutritionists (perioperative nutritional plan), and more.
Patient and family convenience: Doctor visits shouldn’t be a hassle; instead, the experience should be convenient and comfortable. We are the first to offer case manager and 0800-hotline services to help schedule appointments and surgeries. Our case manager will guide you through the checkups and doctor’s visit, so patients and family can familiarize themselves with the hospital environment, avoiding inconveniences, long waiting times, and privacy issues.
Two-way communications with the doctor in charge: You can contact your doctor directly on the cell phone before and after the surgery. Doctors can be updated on patient’s condition that advances patient safety with immediate two-way communication.
Patients’ privacy: We are located in the Taipei Central-Clinic Hospital (originally Chung-Hsin Clinic), where privacy-oriented VIP services have always been available.
Convenient transportation: We are at No.77, Sec. 4, Chung Hsiao E. Rd., right in the center of Taipei. The hospital is located near MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing Station, Exit 11 (the exit at Central-Clinic Hospital, East Metro Mall). Many buses also stop here (Dinghao Market).
Most importantly, our mission is to care for and serve our hernia patients with the most professional manner in the world!
