Hernia Surgeon in Goregaon, Mumbai

What is Hernia?

The hernia is said to occur when a part of an organ or fatty tissue bulges out through a weak area of the adjacent soft tissue wall. This out bulging leads to pain and discomfort and sometimes it may even cause an emergency (E.g. Strangulated hernia)

Types of Hernia:

Inguinal Hernia:An inguinal hernia occurs when part of the intestine or fatty tissue pokes through a weakened area of the abdominal wall to either side of the inguinal canal. The inguinal canal is a passage that occurs on each side of the lower abdomen and connects to the genitals

Femoral Hernia:
Women are more at risk for femoral hernias than men, especially older women. This type of hernia occurs when a portion of the intestine pokes through a weakened area into the upper thigh muscle just under the groin.

Incisional Hernia:
An incisional hernia occurs when a hernia forms through a scar from abdominal surgery. Generally, an abdominal organ, most often the bowel or intestine, pushes through the area weakened by the surgery and the scar and causes a bulge

Umbilical Hernia:
A hernia that protrudes in the belly button area is called an umbilical hernia. An umbilical hernia occurs when the tissue lining of the abdomen doesn’t close over this area, and an organ in the abdomen bulges outward. Although adults can develop umbilical hernias, they are most commonly seen in infants.

Epigastric Hernia:
Epigastric hernias are lumps or bulges that occur in the upper part of the abdominal wall – in an area known as the epigastrium, which is above the navel and just below the breastbone.

Hiatal Hernia:
A hernia occurs when internal tissue or part of an organ pushes through a weakness in the wall of a body part that would usually hold it in place. A hiatal hernia occurs in the area where the food pipe narrows.

Rectal Hernia:
A rectal hernia is known as a rectocele, a protrusion of the rectal wall into the vagina. If the muscles around the rectum weaken, the hernia forms when straining to have a bowel movement. A rectal hernia is particularly likely to occur in women who have undergone difficult childbirth or multiple deliveries

Spigelian Hernia:
A Spigelian hernia is a hernia through the Spigelian fascia or layer of tissue that separates two groups of abdominal muscles. The muscles are called the rectus muscles and the lateral obliques.

Reducible Hernia:When the hernia can be pushed back into the opening it came through

Irreducible or incarcerated Hernia:When the organ or abdominal tissues have filled the hernia sac, and it cannot be pushed back through the hole it came through

Strangulated Hernia:When part of an organ or tissue becomes stuck inside the hernia with its blood supply often cut off.

Treatment Options for Hernia Repair:

  • Open Hernia repair
  • Laparoscopic Hernia repair

Open Hernia repair

In a Open repair, the surgeon makes an incision several inches long near the hernia. Once the surgeon can clearly see the herniated body part, surgeon gently pushes it back into its proper place. Then the weakness or hole in the abdominal wall is repaired with stitches. Finally, the outer skin incision is closed with stitches. Surgeons frequently use a synthetic mesh patch to repair hernias.

Laparoscopic Hernia repair

In a laparoscopic repair, a harmless gas is injected into your abdomen to inflate it. This gives your surgeon more room to work and a better view. The surgeon gently pulls the herniated body part back into its proper place. Surgeon then positions a mesh patch over the weakness in patient’s abdominal wall. The patch is secured in place with harmless staples, surgical clips or stitches. At the end of the procedure, your abdomen is deflated. The small incisions are closed with sutures or surgical tape
