About Us

Since the inception of his surgical practice, Dr. Jeffrey B. Mazin has been on the cutting edge of technology, demonstrating superlative skills in all areas of general and laparoscopic surgery. His attention to detail and thoroughness has positioned him as an innovator and a pioneer of technologies and techniques such as sentinel lymph node surgery, pilonidal operative procedures, surgery for male breast reduction, thyroid surgery, parathyroid surgery, oncoplastic female breast surgery, and hernia repairs.


A manuscript published by Dr. Mazin in 1988 prompted the development of his keen interest in hernias and hernia repair – a pursuit that resulted in his creating the Hernia Surgical Specialists of Southern California in 1990. This evolved into research and development in the areas of hernias, hernia repairs, and prevention and treatment of chronic pain associated with groin surgery.


The late 1990s and early 2000s brought rapid changes in the treatment of hemorrhoids with a painless, non-surgical, 20-second in-office procedure. This significant technical advancement has been added to Dr Mazin’s repertoire of expertise, further demonstrating his use of modern technology that yields rapid, definitive, and impressive results.


Dr. Mazin also has the reputation of being an exceptional diagnostician. Not only does he perform intricate surgeries, he also offers non-surgical diagnostic and treatment regimens. Dr. Mazin strives to educate his patients regarding their health concerns, whereby they are able to make logical, informed decisions regarding their personal health challenges. Ultimately, Dr. Mazin’s practice continues to evolve to best serve the individual needs of each of his patients.
