Hernia Surgery

Hernia surgery, also known as herniorrhaphy, is a procedure aimed at repairing a hernia, which occurs when an organ pushes through the surrounding muscle or tissue wall. There are various types of hernias, including inguinal (groin), umbilical (belly button), and hiatal (upper stomach). 

During hernia surgery, the surgeon makes an incision near the hernia site and pushes the protruding organ back into place. Then, the weakened muscle or tissue wall is reinforced with stitches or mesh to prevent the hernia from recurring. The procedure can be performed using traditional open surgery or minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopy.

Benefits of hernia surgery include relief from discomfort, prevention of complications like strangulation (where the blood supply to the trapped organ is cut off), and improvement in quality of life. Recovery time varies depending on the type of surgery and individual factors, but most patients can return to normal activities within a few weeks.

As with any surgery, there are risks involved, such as infection, bleeding, or recurrence of the hernia.
