Please join Dr. Amber Koon while she explains how she is transforming her hernia practice as a young community-based surgeon and impacting her patients’ lives.

Dr. Koon will discuss her hernia repair decision algorithm, and how she gained expertise in more advanced robotic repairs, while improving her understanding of more intricate mesh materials. As a community-based surgeon with an advanced robotics practice, understanding the value-based model of shared care and tracking patient outcomes is a critical to her success.
