RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Thanks for posting that.
So to summarize Aentna: the surgery seems to work for professional athletes - but we don't see it as necessarily working for non-professional athletes. We think that non-professionals who benefit from surgery are possibly cured by a placebo effect.
Translation: thanks for paying your medical insurance premium, but we aren't going to pay for your surgery - which is classified as a "medical" condition. Also, not sure how to fix it, try some placebo pills, and some ice 3x per day for 20-30 minutes (we're sure you haven't tried that yet).
