Hi there and thank you for the question. I am a Registered Nurse and will be happy to help you today.

A general surgeon will be able to fix this area for you. You can see a GI Doc and they can refer you out to one or you can self-refer in a lot of cases. Most cases of this are corrected via Laparoscopy so the incisions are very small.

Reply back if I can help you further.

Sure thing. You can self-refer. Start with one that you have heard good things about (if any) and go from there.

Good luck with everything!
