Hernia Surgery

I can help you perform hernia surgery using laparoscopy (minimally invasive) to ensure minimal pain and faster recovery.

Why do hernias occur?

An inguinal hernia occurs when soft tissue, usually part of the membrane lining the abdominal cavity (peritoneum and preperitoneal fat) or part of the intestine, protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles at the groin level. The resulting bulge can be painful, especially when coughing, bending over, or lifting a heavy object.

Types of hernias

  • Inguinal Hernia: Inguinal hernias are the most common type of hernia. They occur when the intestines push through a weak spot or tear in the lower abdominal wall, often in the inguinal canal. This type is also more common in men.
  • Hiatal Hernia: A hiatal hernia occurs when part of your stomach protrudes through the diaphragm into the chest cavity. The diaphragm is a layer of muscle that helps you breathe by contracting and drawing air into the lungs. It separates the organs in the abdomen from those in the chest.
  • Umbilical Hernia: Umbilical hernias can occur in children and babies. This happens when their intestines protrude through the abdominal wall near the belly button. You might notice a bulge at or near your child’s belly button, especially when they are crying.
  • Ventral Hernia: A ventral hernia occurs when tissue protrudes through an opening in the muscles of your abdomen. You might notice that the size of a ventral hernia reduces when lying down.
  • Femoral Hernia: This occurs when the intestine passes under the inguinal ligament into the femoral canal, causing intense pain. Sometimes a mass or bulge can be seen under the inguinal ligament, at the top of the thigh near the groin, but it is not always palpable.
