Inguinal Hernia

A hernia is tissue that bulges out of a weak spot in the groins. Your intestines may bulge out through this weakened area. In time, most hernias grow, and surgery is the only way to resolve them. During hernia repair, this bulging tissue is pushed back in. Your abdominal wall is strengthened and supported with stitches, and mesh.

Our surgeons use the latest minimally invasive techniques that result in smaller incisions, fewer stitches, less pain and much faster recoveries. Inguinal hernia repair with our advanced approach is safe and effective, minimizes discomfort and scarring after surgery and promotes rapid recovery and a return to normal activity in days.

Ventral Hernia/Incisional Hernias

A ventral hernia is a bulge (of tissues) through an opening, or defect, within the abdominal wall muscles. It can occur anywhere on the abdominal wall. Many are called incisional hernias because they often form at the healed site of past surgical incisions where the muscle weakened. Some people are born with a defect that causes the abdominal wall to be abnormally thin. They are at a greater risk for developing a ventral hernia. Other risk factors include: pregnancy, obesity, history of previous hernias, history of abdominal surgeries, injuries to the bowel area and family history of hernias or constantly lifting or pushing heavy objects.

Our surgeons use the latest minimally invasive techniques that result in smaller incisions, fewer stitches, less pain and much faster recoveries. Ventral/Incisional hernia repair with our advanced approach is safe and effective, minimizes discomfort and scarring after surgery and promotes rapid recovery and a return to normal activity in days.

Femoral Hernia

A femoral hernia happens when tissue bulges from below the groin crease into the upper thigh. Femoral hernias are more common in women than in men. Pain from a femoral hernia is most often felt in the groin area and can be hard to diagnose. The hernia may be too small for your doctor to feel during a physical exam. You may need other tests. Often a femoral hernia is found when part of the intestine is trapped and blood supply to the tissue is cut off. This is called a strangulated hernia and requires emergency surgery.

Umbilical Hernia

An umbilical hernia happens when the opening in the stomach muscle that allows the umbilical cord to pass through does not close as it should. Umbilical hernias are most common in babies, but they can also occur in adults.

An umbilical hernia in adults usually occurs when too much pressure is put on a weak section of the stomach muscles, due to factors including: stomach surgery; being overweight, frequent pregnancies, multiple gestation pregnancies (twins, triplets, etc.), fluid in the abdominal cavity, and having a persistent, heavy cough.

Umbilical hernia repair with our advanced approach is safe and effective, minimizes discomfort and scarring after surgery and promotes rapid recovery and a return to normal activity in days.

Epigastric Hernia

An epigastric hernia happens when fat pushes through a weak part of the belly wall. It occurs in the middle of the belly between the breastbone and the navel. Most often, these hernias are small. You can have more than one epigastric hernia at a time.

Epigastric hernias often have few or no symptoms. But they can cause pain in the upper belly. We recommend surgery to repair an epigastric hernia when the patient can tolerate anesthesia.

Our surgeons use the latest minimally invasive techniques that result in smaller incisions, fewer stitches, less pain and much faster recoveries. Epigastric hernia repair with our advanced approach is safe and effective, minimizes discomfort and scarring after surgery and promotes rapid recovery and a return to normal activity in days.

Hiatal Hernia

Another cause is putting too much pressure (repeatedly) on the muscles of the diaphragm next to the stomach. This can happen when coughing, vomiting, and straining during bowel movements and lifting heavy objects. Some people are also born with an abnormally large hiatus (the opening through which the stomach moves upward into the chest).

Most cases of hiatal hernias don’t require treatment. The presence of symptoms usually determines treatment. If you have acid reflux and heartburn, pain, shortness of breath or vomiting, repair is recommended.
