What Is A Hernia & How Is It Fixed?

A hernia is a hole in your abdominal wall that may present as a bulge or even pain. Repairing this hole helps prevent bowel strangulation, which can be a life threatening surgical emergency. If surgical intervention is necessary, we attempt to limit the pain and recovery of surgery by using advance techniques including minimally invasive surgery and protocols including ERAS (Enhance Recovery After Surgery).
