Hernia Surgery

What is Hernia

It is the protrusion (bulge) of abdominal viscera through a weakened part of abdominal wall. A hernia does not get better over time, nor will it go away by itself (except very small congenital navel hernia). It always becomes bigger with time.

Causes of Hernia

Usually there are four main causes in adults viz Heavy Weight lifting,Chronic cough ,Straining Urination or Constipation & Obese persons ,Weak anterior abdominal wall musculature .

Types Of Hernia

The common types of hernias are present in the groin (inguinal), belly button (umbilical) and the site of a previous operation (incisional). There are many more types but are rare.


Bulge is seen under the skin at hernial orifices usually at Navel ,Inguinal region on straining or standing .Pain is usually not accompanied ,but gradually as hernia grows bigger in size it causes discomfort sometimes patient may land up in strangulation of hernial contents leading to emergency operation .


SURGERY Is the Only Treatment .It is done in two ways conventional Open Surgery & Laparoscopically.Nowadays Due to innovation and advantages ,more patients are opting for Laproscopic surgery as its Keyhole surgery ,small incisions are taken ,recovery is faster ,post operative pain is less as compared to open surgery,also since large mesh are fixed chances of recurrences are almost negligible
