WE CARE FOR YOUR 

Hernia

Umbilical:


An umbilical hernia is a sac (pouch) formed from the inner lining of the abdominal cavity that pushes through a hole in the abdominal wall at the belly button. Procedure can be done laparoscopically or open. If done laparoscopically, a lighted tube (scope) will be inserted through one of several small incisions. The instruments will be inserted through the other cuts. If done open, an incision is made under the belly button. The hernia is then found and separated from the tissues around it. Then, the contents of the hernia sac are gently pushed back into the abdomen.

Inguinal:


Surgery to repair a hernia (tissue bulging from a weak spot) in your groin.  Procedure can be done laparoscopically or open. If done laparoscopically, a lighted tube (scope) will be inserted through one of 3-5 small incisions. The instruments will be inserted through the other cuts. If done open, an incision is made near the hernia. The hernia is then found and separated from the tissues around it. Then, the contents of the hernia sac are gently pushed back into the abdomen or the hernia sac is removed altogether.

Ventral:


Surgery to repair a ventral hernia, a sac formed from the inner lining of the abdomen that pushes through a hole in the abdominal wall. Ventral hernias often occur at the site of an old incision. This type of ventral hernia is also called incisional hernia. Procedure can be done laparoscopically or open. If done laparoscopically, a lighted tube (scope) will be inserted through one of several small incisions. The instruments will be inserted through the other cuts. If done open, an incision is made near the hernia. The hernia is then found and separated from the tissues around it. Then, the contents of the hernia sac are gently pushed back into the abdomen or the hernia sac is removed altogether.

Femoral:


Surgery to repair a hernia near the groin or upper thigh. Procedure can be done laparoscopically or open. If done laparoscopically, a lighted tube (scope) will be inserted through one of several small incisions. The instruments will be inserted through the other cuts. If done open, an incision is made near the hernia. The hernia is then found and separated from the tissues around it. Then, the contents of the hernia sac are gently pushed back into the abdomen or the hernia sac is removed altogether.
