He has been a longstanding Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Diplomat of the American Board of Surgery, and member of the Massachusetts Medical Society. He has been involved in hundreds of peer reviewed scientific and clinical journal articles, scientific meeting presentations, invited lectures, and faculty for surgeon courses around the globe. He has written over a dozen book chapters in the field of minimally invasive surgery and hernia repair, and recently co-edited a textbook of Natural Orifice Surgery. He is also on the editorial advisory board of the popular General Surgery News publication distributed to every general surgeon in the United States.
His interest in surgical education has taken him to the far reaches of the globe, with substantial volunteer surgical experience and education on five continents. In 2017, he spent a year working for the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a medical office in the Division of Surgical Devices. He was recently completed his tenure as Chief Medical Officer for the healthcare analytics company Surgical Momentum, which has recently become CQ Insights, and is the Western Massachusetts Regional Medical Advisor for the National Ski Patrol.
Dr. Earle founded the New England Hernia Center as a private practice, specifically to allow him the ability to practice quality over quantity, a concept increasingly impeded in large medical centers. His clinical practice has been focused on hernia disease since 1996, and emphasizes a patient focused approach, centered on the principle of establishing and aligning the goals of the individual patient with the health care team.
His hobbies include spending time with family, mountaineering, mountain biking, snowboarding, photography, and playing guitar.
My trauma surgeon told me that a repair would be risky and carried a good chance of failure; he encouraged me to live with it. A medical colleague recommended that I consult Dr. Earle, to whom his entire countywide surgical group referred their patients with similar hernias. Dr. Earle repaired my hernia, and I can button my pants without lying flat. One year later, I am running, biking, swimming, and am ready to take on my stand up paddleboard.
Thank you all for everything you have done. You have given my life back and appreciate everything you all have done for me.
Thank you for listening to me and going ahead with the surgery even though all the tests kept coming back negative. You are truly patient driven and I’m so grateful you were able to determine the source of my pain. Thank you for all of your humor during my visits, phone calls, the day of surgery & post-op appt. I have not ever met a team that kept striving for an answer. Thank you for all you have done!
- Thanks for another year of caring!

Thanks for all you have done over the years and not giving up on me. Always your #1 fan.
Merry Christmas to you Dr. Earle. You are special to me. I hope by the grace of God you live a good and special life.
I will be forever grateful to you for the surgery you performed a year ago. Having the operation, at long last, changed my life. Thank you again.
Dear Dr. Earle, Not only have you given me a new life, you have given me a happy and quality life. Thank you and God bless.
Thank you so very much for your expert and wonderful care. I appreciate everything – especially my new body!!
You are an excellent surgeon and our daughter learned so much from you during the last year. One of the most important skills she observed was your willingness to listen to your patients and your incredible ability to connect to them as people. Parents of a former trainee.
I can’t believe what you were able to accomplish by using Dysport to repair my hernias. Thank you from a very grateful patient.
You have been wonderful to me, you saved my life and I will always remember that. You have not only been my doctor, but a friend to me for the rest of my life.
We want to thank you so much for everything you did. Dr. Earle you’re wonderful. God blessed you with your talent. Your staff is so kind and willing to help.
On my way home from my one-year follow-up appointment, I kept thinking about how lucky I am to have had you repair my ventral hernia. It had been bothering me for years & and now I don’t ever have to think about it! I want to tell you how much I appreciate your skill & how much you care! It’s really obvious to me that your work means a great deal to you. P.S. I love your sense of humor too! THANK YOU!!
I would like to thank everyone for treating me well, during the time with my office visits & surgery. I am doing very well so far.
Thank you so much. I was really pleased with your care and expertise, because this was much more than a hernia to me.
Thank you very much for making a vast improvement in my life.
