The treatment of these and other disorders is dependent on a meticulous investigation to secure the proper diagnosis.

Groin and pelvic pain, either acute or chronic, have long been underserved conditions. The reasons for this are unclear but may derive from the fact that these entities do not fall into the traditional categories of illnesses/diagnosis taught during medical school or residency.

patients share their experiences

I know that "he saved my life" is almost a cliche. but it's true. I"m a cancer survivor and Dr. Iraci made a decision during my surgery that I'm convinced did make the difference between life and death. And I'm a physician, so I know. There is no finer.

Saved my life after appendicitis, extremely intelligent and accessible. He came back to the hospital to perform my surgery and was very fast to start - you don’t find doctors like him anymore.

Dr. Joseph Iraci is a graduate and valedictorian of Fordham University and New York Medical College. After surgical residency training at Lenox Hill Hospital and fellowship training at The University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Iraci began his surgical practice in 1983. He is Board Certified in Surgery and Critical Care Medicine and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. His areas of special interest are minimally invasive abdominal surgery, gastro-intestinal surgery and hernia surgery.

According to Dr. Iraci, innovations in modern medicine have produced a large variety of important advances, but managed care has not been one of them. Currently, the insurance companies have created a wedge between their subscribers (patients) and their providers (doctors). I have long felt that this not the best course for either the patients or the physicians. As such, he has continued to provide Surgical care in a traditional manner giving each and every patient sufficient time for a clear understanding of their proposed procedure well in advance of the day of surgery. Post-operatively, appointments are scheduled within a specific time-frame to allow for a thorough description of the procedure performed, and a thorough explanation of what can be reasonably expected for their future will be given in understandable layman terms. This traditional method of patient care is combined with the latest surgical techniques of this modern age to provide optimal care of the whole person not just the disease being treated.

This old-school dedication, learned at the knee of his General Practitioner father, allows him the flexibility to see current as well as new patients on short-notice or as the need arises. His patients know their care is his primary concern, and the best possible outcome is of paramount importance to him. The testimonials of his patients attest to this.

For patients interested in a surgical approach, it is recommended that a consultation with Dr. Iraci be scheduled first in order to discuss the symptoms one is experiencing, the groin or pelvic condition, and the treatment options available. This is the best first step to clarify the entire treatment process that will ensure the highest quality of care and options available. Your first consultation is free.
