Abdominal Wall Hernias

A hernia is a defect or weakness in the abdominal wall.  The bulge seen through the skin is usually a portion of the bowel or fat that protrudes through the hernia defect.

Hernias can be seen in many places throughout the abdominal wall.  Some of the most common are Inguinal, Umbilical, Incisional, Ventral or femoral.  They can also be seen inside the abdominal cavity, some examples are: Hiatal, Paraesophageal and/or Diaphragmatic hernia.

Hernia Repair

Does every hernia needs to be repair? The short answer to that is NO. Many factors come into play prior to deciding if a hernia should be repair. Patients with hernias that are enlarging, causing pain or limiting activities should strongly consider surgery.  Also patients experiencing symptoms of incarceration or strangulation should seek medical attention and consider surgery.
