About Us

In 1967 Stella Chavos and her husband James F. Chavos, a former Navy medic, founded Newport Center Orthopedic, to serve special and every day health needs of individuals. Their plan was to build upon a foundation of superior customer service.  After the death of her husband in 1977, Stella, together with her two sons, Franklin and Anthony, continued to grow the business on the principals of unequaled product knowledge and customer service.

Today,  Newport Center Orthopedic is still owned and operated by the Chavos family and continues the tradition of providing expert advice, superior products and customer service that exceeds all expectations. We call this the “Family Factor” of customer service – treating each customer as a member of our family.

In keeping with Stella’s desire to serve the medical and health care needs of her customers and with the advancement of technology and the internet, Stella launched HerniaProducts.com, an online-only company in 2002.   The goal for Hernia Products.com has been and continues to be, to offer the same personalized customer service and professionalism that Stella and her staff have provided onsite at Newport Center Orthopedic but with the added shopping convenience of an online store.

It is our goal to operate HerniaProducts.com with the continued spirit of dedication and commitment to customer service that has defined Newport Center Orthopedic for almost a half a century.  We are focused on making the right products accessible and affordable to our customers.  We will never sacrifice service, or quality and have kept our small family business as such so that we have the ability to provide personal service to each and every customer.
