Hernia Surgery Q&A

What is hernia surgery?

 

Hernia surgery is a procedure to repair a hernia, which occurs when intestines or other tissue protrude through muscles abnormally. Hernias can cause pain, swelling, aching, and other issues, which may increase over time if untreated. 

 

Hernia repair can restore your tissues to their normal position and stop any uncomfortable symptoms. 

What conditions does hernia surgery treat?

 

Hernia surgery treats conditions such as: 

Inguinal hernia

 

Inguinal hernias occur when a part of the intestine or fatty tissue pushes through a weak spot in the muscles in your lower abdomen. This kind of hernia is far more common in men than women, and it’s the most common type of hernia overall. 

Femoral hernia

 

Femoral hernias, like inguinal hernias, occur when intestines or fatty tissue squeeze through muscles. In femoral hernias, however, this occurs in the groin, at the top of your thigh. It’s far more common in women but is a less common kind of hernia overall. 

Hiatal hernia

 

Hiatal hernias develop when the upper part of the stomach pushes through a weak part of your diaphragm muscle to move into your chest. 

Umbilical hernia

 

Umbilical hernias occur when intestinal or fatty tissue penetrates abdominal muscles around your navel. 

 

Incisional hernia

 

An incisional hernia may develop after surgery, due to weakening in the tissues treated in the surgery. 

 

The Lenox Hill Surgeons, LLP team regularly performs all types of hernia repairs.

What happens during hernia repair?

 

Every hernia repair surgery is different based on the type of hernia, the symptoms it causes, and other individual factors. The team takes the time to explain your options and their recommendations so you can choose for yourself. 

 

In most cases, the Lenox Hill Surgeons, LLP team performs minimally invasive procedures using the most advanced surgical system, da Vinci® robotics. 

 

Using the da Vinci system, surgeons use a bedside console to maneuver robotic arms that perform your hernia repair with the highest standard of precision. They create very small incisions and view the hernia site using a tiny, high-definition camera. 

 

The minimally invasive robotic surgery approach decreases hospital time, bleeding, pain, and recovery times. And studies show that patients who have da Vinci robotic hernia repair need to see their doctor less often in the month following their surgery.
