He resolved a very painful abdominal nerve issue that 7 other Dr’s had no idea why I was having pain, but had no issues running every test on earth and even prescribing meds for diseases I didn’t have. I prefer Dr Dumanian’s approach to fixing the issue and being able to hopefully live a medication free existence.

Dr Dumanian is an excellent surgeon and wonderful doctor. First, his website is amazing - it’s straightforward and academic, and gave me confidence in his abilities. Then when I had a consult with him, he was the first surgeon that I saw for my abdominal hernia issues, who I feel actually understood my situation and was compassionate and caring, wanted to help, and had a plan. I flew in from out of state to have him perform my surgery. When I had surgery, I Continued to be impressed - I had pretty extensive surgery (in my opinion) and I was pleased and suprised at how well my recovery and healing has progressed. He and his staff are impressive.
