Our weight loss surgeons use cutting edge technology to perform innovative bariatric surgeries designed to help patients fight obesity and achieve a healthier life.

Hernia Surgery

Hernias are simply a hole or defect in the wall of the abdominal cavity that allows protrusion of an organ or abdominal content through it. The fascia is a thick layer of tissue that keeps the contents of the abdomen in place. There are certain areas of the abdominal wall which are considered sites of weakness, these are inguinal, femoral and umbilical areas. The groin represents the area where approximately 75% of hernias develop.

Whether due to excess abdominal strain, age, genetics or congenital disorders, this tissue can weaken and intestinal contents may begin to push through. Most commonly, fatty tissue and loops of large intestine may push into, and ultimately become trapped in, the hernia defect.
