HERNIAS


Hernia surgery is also known as herniorrhaphy. During hernia repair surgery, a surgeon pushes bulging tissue back into place. A hernia occurs when the wall of an organ protrudes through a weak spot in the body wall or fascia that is surrounding it. There are a variety of different types of hernias and hernia repairs, depending on the location. Since the location of hernias vary, the type of surgery involved in repairing a hernia will vary.

Groin or Inguinal Hernia
A hernia between the abdomen and thigh. This type of hernia happens when tissue is forced through a weak area in the groin area, due to excessive strain or weight. Although this can be the result of activities it usually is a congenital “weak spot” that worsens with time. The earlier the repair is done the easier it is to recover from surgery.

Incisional Hernia
A hernia caused by a poorly healed surgical wound. The hernia will develop in the same way. The first sign will be a noticeable bulge at or close to the incision site.

Hiatal Hernia (Paraoesophageal hernia)
A paraoesophageal hernia, also known as a type II, III, or IV hiatal hernia, occurs when a large portion of the stomach or other organs move up into the chest through the diaphragm.
