Memorial Hospital announces new hernia center

Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island is now home to the Comprehensive Hernia Center, the region's only integrated, multi-disciplinary facility.

The center offers care for people with all types of hernias, and includes the latest treatments in hernia surgery.

The Comprehensive Hernia Center is led by two surgeons, Dr. Peter Gill and Dr. Alfredo Cordova. They're the only two doctors in Rhode Island that are part of the American Hernia Society Quality Collaborative.

Both specialize in minimally-invasive techniques, leading to a faster recovery.
