Dignity Health Medical Group Surgical Specialtists Kevin McGeever, MD, Thomas Gillespie, MD, Vikram J. Deka, MD, Conrad Ballecer MD and James Makin, MD make up the Hernia Center of Excellence with knowledge, experience and humankindness.

Distinguished as Surgeons of Excellence in hernia and robotic surgery by the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC), this group of surgeons provides a quality patient experience for those who suffer from the most complicated hernia cases.

The two SRC distinctions identify these surgeons as providing safe, high-quality surgical care using evidence-based approaches to hernia surgical repair with a proven competency in robotic technology. This decreases cost and reduces patient recovery time by streamlining care and technical approaches to hernia and surgical repair.
