Ebox, here is my take on Boyarsky:
He is a disciple of Dr. Muschaweck. He uses ultrasound and a finger exam (not unlike the one docs use to find inguinal hernia) to diagnose what he calls sports hernia. He told me he learned the ultrasound technique directly from Dr. Muschaweck. The ultrasound will clearly show a "bulge" in the inguinal canal. This is the injury that Dr. Muschaweck and Dr. Boyarsky diagnose and repair. He did not find any evidence of such injury when examining me (he told me that patients usually experience sharp pain during the finger exam; i didn't) and said he found no reason to operate on me.
In my opinion (which should be taken with generous helpings of salt because I am most certainly not a doctor) Dr. Meyers diagnoses and repairs a different set of syndromes, which he refers to as athletic pubalgia. These tend to be less focused in the inguinal canal region and more on the rectus abdominis and adductor muscles in the lower abdomen and groin, respectively. His MRI showed tears in my RA on both sides, at the insertion point with the pubic bone.
Despite Dr. Boyarsky's diagnosis, I knew that something was definitely wrong with me. At its worst, my pain was such that it spread from my abdominal muscle into my groin and even to the inner knee, to the point where I was limping around. I shut it down at that point, stopped playing hockey and all other athletic activity, and went for two rounds of physical therapy. I continued PT exercises on my own after my insurance stopped covering the visits, all the while avoiding hockey and other working out. By the time I saw Boyarsky (about a month after my first visit with Meyers; this was while I was still determined to avoid surgery if possible) I was without pain quite often, and even when the pain kicked in it was a shadow of what it was at its worst. So I'm not sure whether that affected his diagnosis.
I liked Boyarsky (except for his suggestion that "at my age" -- I was only 36 at the time and am 37 now -- I might just consider not playing hockey anymore) and agree that he is very straightforward. He came recommended by my sports medicine doctor, who studied under him in medical school. He works with a lot of Rutgers athletes, from what I understand. Boyarsky referred me to a Dr. Bechler, a sports orthopedist, in an effort to determine whether there was something else causing my pain. I did not like Bechler at all. He ultimately made a not unreasonable suggestion try to slowly return to all the physical activity I wanted to engage in before undergoing surgery but in the process he slandered Meyers, all but suggesting that Meyers is a kook and rushes to perform unnecessary surgery. "I've seen a lot of his patients -- they're not better," and "I can't believe you don't already have a scar" (when I told him I'd seen Meyers once and was seeking other opinions in an effort to avoid surgery) and "I don't see any of these things he's referring to on your films; If you're going to have surgery the only person I'd want you to have it with is Andy (Boyarsky)." Bechler tried to scare me and I think he irresponsibly slandered Meyers in an effort to direct more patients to his friend. Boyarsky did acknowledge to me that although he disagrees with what Meyers does (specifically bilateral repair and adductor release), that Meyers is the acknowledged #1 guy in the US for this injury. He was the good cop. Bechler was the bad cop. If he asks you to go see Bechler, be forewarned. If you do go see him and mention Meyers, I'd be very interested to hear his reaction.
Ultimately I felt much more comfortable with Meyers (he was fine with me trying to slowly return to activity in an effort to avoid surgery and at no point did I feel like he was rushing me to go under the knife) and trusted that he correctly diagnosed me and could fix me. I am 6 weeks post-op with him and feeling very good. But, as I said, I think that as a disciple of Muschaweck, Boyarsky simply approaches the injury differently. I think that Muschaweck/Boyarsky look for and fix a different variety of the injury than does Meyers. If your symptoms are mostly in the inguinal region, Boyarsky/Muschaweck are likely for you. If you primarily have RA/adductor pathology, see Meyers.
Hope that helps, and good luck!
