Simplify the Process

National Hernia Network was designed to make the process of workers’ compensation hernia repair as easy as possible.

National Hernia Network schedules evaluations with hernia surgeons who are board certified, Fellows of the American College of Surgeons, and members of the American Hernia Society. Hernia specialists repair hernias at outpatient surgical centers.

Nurse on the phone

All of this care is coordinated through the National Hernia Network central office. A single call starts the process. National Hernia Network does the rest (scheduling OR, anesthesia, pain meds, and providing frequent updates). Trained staff keeps the workers compensation adjuster or nurse informed from initial consultation until MMI. Dealing with the M.D. or staff who won’t return calls is a thing of the past. A single fee provides all of this service to the employer, adjuster and nurse. NHN takes care of all the other bills, claims and hassles. Excellent service at an excellent price.
