How Risky Can a Hernia Be?

In certain cases, a hernia can carry significant risks, such as the development of an incarcerated hernia. This type of hernia occurs when blood flow to a section of the intestine becomes restricted, potentially leading to the death of the affected bowel tissue. Strangulated hernias, in particular, pose life-threatening situations that demand immediate surgical intervention.

When a hernia becomes strangulated, it manifests through symptoms such as severe pain, nausea, vomiting, and fever. While certain hernias can be manually pushed back into their proper place, the repair of a strangulated hernia requires surgery.

Do You Require the Expertise of a Hernia Specialist?

Inguinal Hernia

Inguinal Hernias Among the various types of hernias, inguinal hernias are the most commonly encountered. While they can affect women, they are more prevalent in males. Statistics show that approximately 1 in 4 males will experience an inguinal hernia at some point in their lifetime. The natural weakness in the groin area, caused by the descent of the testicle from the abdomen into the scrotum, predisposes males to develop inguinal hernias.

To minimize post-operative pain and the risk of chronic pain, I utilize a tackless technique for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair.

Haital Hernia

Hiatal hernias usually occur later in life and present with a wide range of symptoms. These symptoms can include heartburn, nausea, vomiting, regurgitation, abdominal pain, chest pain, difficulty swallowing, bloating, belching, or coughing. The term "hiatal" is derived from "hiatus," which refers to an opening, specifically the esophageal hiatus.

Umbilical Hernia

Among the various hernia types, umbilical hernias are quite common. They are naturally occurring hernias that can affect individuals of all age groups, ranging from infants to the elderly. These hernias form at the site of the navel, known as the umbilicus, which represents a natural weakness in the abdominal wall due to the passage of the umbilical cord.

Umbilical hernias typically manifest as painless bulges at the navel, which may increase in size and become more painful over time. They tend to cause more symptoms during physical activity or prolonged standing, necessitating the expertise of a skilled hernia surgeon for successful treatment.

How Can You Determine If Your Hernia Requires Surgery?

Hernias are common but often misunderstood conditions. If you notice swelling and a bulge that can be pushed back into your abdomen, it may indicate the presence of a hernia. However, if the hernia continues to grow, surgical intervention is necessary to repair it.

How Long Does a Hernia Operation Take?

On average, a hernia operation takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes to complete, and most patients can return home on the same day. In some cases, individuals with other medical conditions or those living alone may need to stay in the hospital overnight."
