Hernia Surgery

A hernia is a hole in the fascia of the abdomen through which the contents of the abdominal cavity, most often the intestines, protrude. Hernias can be small or large, painless or painful, and can appear virtually anywhere in the abdomen. Over a million hernia repair surgeries are performed in the United States every year, making it the most common surgical procedure for a general surgeon.

About Hernias

A hernia is the general term for the protrusion of an internal organ through a muscle wall as a result of the weakening of its retaining barrier, called the fascia.
