Abdominal wall hernias are one of the most common of all surgical procedures. Hernias, or weak spots where an internal organ bulges through muscle or tissue, come in many forms, including the commonly occurring inguinal or groin hernias as well as incisional hernias, which happen at the site of previous surgery.
These hernias can be bothersome and even painful. Since hernias can be dangerous, a primary care provider or a surgeon should evaluate every hernia, but not every hernia needs to be fixed.
Our multidisciplinary team specializes in the review and repair of all types of hernias, including those that have been previously mended.
