Abdominal Hernia
Abdominal Hernia

Hernias are a common condition affecting men and women at different ages

  • The stomach and intestine help digest the food we eat
  • They are inside the abdomen, covered and protected by the layers of the abdominal wall
  • Those muscles may become weak
  • The intestine will push out through the weak spots

Hernias are weaknesses in the abdominal wall and are different types depending on their location

  • Hernia Types: Umbilical, inguinal, hiatal, incisional, ventral.
  • Weakness in the muscle can be congenital or from lifting heavy objects.
  • Hernias get larger with time so it is better to fix them while they are small
  • Hernias can be dangerous when presented as an emergency
  • Surgery is the only way to fix a hernia
