Beverly Hills Hernia Institute Appoints Director

The Beverly Hills Hernia Institute, an international leader in the technologies and procedures used to correct inguinal hernias and prevent their recurrence, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Kai Nishi as the Institute's new Director.

Dr. Nishi brings years of experience to the Hernia Institute, and has the distinction of being the first surgeon in the nation to ever perform a robotic single-incision inguinal hernia repair in an outpatient facility. He also speaks extensively to patients, other medical professionals, and the media about minimally-invasive surgeries, and is a major pioneer in new surgical technologies. His expertise and his achievements will further the Institute's mission of delivering the best possible care and the quickest possible recovery for all patients suffering from hernias.

The team Dr. Nishi will be joining as Director includes researcher and surgeon Dr. Rafael Reisfeld, robotic surgery expert Dr. Theodore M. Khalili, and Dr. Nishi's former colleague from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Dr. Eraj Basseri, a renowned laparoscopic and robotic-assisted surgeon in his own right.

Augmenting the decades of experience and innovation this team brings to the table is the da Vinci SI System, which truly represents the cutting edge in robotic surgery technology. Precision controls and sophisticated software create opportunities for far less invasive surgical procedures, limiting complications and shortening recovery times. Many patients who were operated on using the da Vinci system for a variety of surgeries, including hernia correction and repair, are able to be treated as outpatients rather than spending days or weeks recovering in a hospital bed.

Inguinal hernias, in which the soft tissue in the abdomen protrudes through a weak point in the abdominal muscles, affect 27% of men and 3% of women. Hernia repair is one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the world. By gathering today's leading experts and latest technologies in one place, the Beverly Hills Hernia Institute aims to make these surgeries easier on patients and their families, giving everyone the opportunity for a quick and full recovery.

Dr. Nishi and his leadership will further this goal, and help cement the BHHI's position as the outpatient facility of choice for hernia repairs.
