Hernia Repair Surgery
When a hernia forms, the inner lining of the abdomen pushes through the opening, forming a sac, and a portion of the intestine or other abdominal tissue can then slip into the sac. This condition can often be treated through a laparoscopic repair procedure, during which the surgeon pushes the protruding tissue back into the abdominal cavity and attaches a surgical mesh to the muscles around the hernia to strengthen the area. Ventral, or abdominal, hernias may develop at the site of a previous surgery, where they are called incisional, in the groin where they are referred to as inguinal, at the navel where they are known as umbilical, or in the region above the navel where they are called epigastric. Hiatal hernias occur at the upper end of the gastrointestinal tract when the stomach protrudes in the esophagus.
