How risky is a hernia?

Hernias pose various risks, including the possibility of an incarcerated hernia. When this occurs, the blood flow to a section of your intestine gets cut off, and in severe cases, it can lead to the death of the affected bowel tissue. Strangulated hernias are particularly dangerous and require immediate surgical intervention.

Identifying a strangulated hernia involves observing symptoms such as intense pain, nausea, vomiting, and fever. While some hernias can be gently pushed back into place, a strangulated hernia necessitates surgical repair to rectify the situation.

Do You Require the Expertise of a Hernia Specialist?

Inguinal Hernia

Inguinal Hernias Among the different types of hernias, inguinal hernias are the most frequently encountered. Although they can affect women, they tend to occur more commonly in males. Shockingly, statistics reveal that about 1 in 4 males will experience an inguinal hernia at some point in their lifetime. Males are more prone to this type of hernia due to the testicle descending from the abdomen into the scrotum, leading to a natural weakness in the groin region where inguinal hernias typically develop.

For laparoscopic inguinal hernia repairs, I employ a tackless technique that not only minimizes immediate postoperative pain but also reduces the chances of chronic pain.

Haital Hernia

Hiatal hernias often manifest later in life and can give rise to a range of symptoms. These symptoms may include heartburn, nausea, vomiting, regurgitation, abdominal pain, chest pain, difficulty swallowing, bloating, belching, or coughing. The term "hiatal" is derived from "hiatus" (or opening), specifically referring to the esophageal hiatus.

Umbilical Hernia

Encountered frequently, umbilical hernias are one of the most common types. They occur naturally and can affect individuals of all ages, from infants to the elderly. These hernias form at the navel, also known as the umbilicus, which is a site where the umbilical cord previously passed through. Consequently, it acts as a natural weak spot in the abdominal wall.

Umbilical hernias present as painless bulges at the navel, which may grow larger and more painful over time. They tend to cause more discomfort during physical activity or prolonged standing, necessitating the expertise of an experienced hernia surgeon to achieve a successful outcome.

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, you may have a hernia. However, if the hernia continues to grow, surgical intervention becomes necessary to repair it.

What Is the Duration of a Hernia Operation?

Typically, a hernia operation takes around 30 to 45 minutes to complete, and you can usually return home on the same day. However, some individuals may need to stay in the hospital overnight if they have other underlying medical conditions or live alone."
