What is a Hernia?
A hernia is a bulging organ or tissue that squeezes through a weak spot in a neighboring muscle or tissue. Hernias typically involve the stomach or intestines and can cause extensive pain and movement limitations. They are often caused by improperly lifting heavy objects, irregular bowel movements or persistent coughing and sneezing.
Hernias can be self-diagnosed, depending on the afflicted area, by the detection of excessive swelling or pain. While it can be detected on your own, treatment of a hernia should be left up to a trained medical professional.
In the past, hernia surgery was often very painful and involved large incisions in the back, groin or abdominal region. With advancements in the medical field, these surgeries have become progressively less visible and less painful. Laparoscopic hernia repair surgery is a short, minimally invasive procedure that involves small, dime-sized incisions that will repair the damaged area, returning the tissue to its normal location and closing the opening.
Benefits of minimally invasive groin hernia surgery are:
- Tiny incisions.
- Little to no pain.
- Short operation 15-30 minutes.
- Go home the same day.
- Return to normal activities and work in days.
- Return to normal exercise activity in 3-6 weeks.
