The Highest Standard of Hernia Repairs

Hernia Institute of Louisiana, founded by Dr. Treen in 1999

Sports Hernia

Over the last several years, more and more publicity has emerged around professional athletes undergoing surgery for a “Sports Hernia”.

Incisional Hernia

Incisional hernias can occur anywhere there has been a previous abdominal incision, and can occur at any time following previous surgery.

Inguinal Hernia

The repair of inguinal hernia is the most common hernia repair procedure in the world, and the most frequently performed surgical procedure.

Ventral/Umbilical Hernia

Ventral hernias can occur in a variety of locations in the abdominal wall with or without previous surgical incision.

Welcome To Our Practice!

The Hernia Institute of Louisiana, founded by Dr. Treen in 1999, was developed out of the perception that advanced techniques in the repair of common hernias as well as major abdominal wall reconstructive procedures were needed in our region. Since the opening of the Hernia Institute, a practice focused upon excellence in hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction, Dr. Treen has brought the latest and most advanced hernia repair techniques to New Orleans.
