What is Hernia?

A hernia occurs when an organ in the abdomen displaces due to the weakening of the muscles that surround the particular organ. There are several causes of hernia. Some of them are- consuming tobacco, smoking, poor nutrition, chronic constipation, etc. A hernia can occur in the abdomen, upper thigh area, belly button, or groins. Although rare, a hernia can occur in an infant also due to the weakness in the muscles during birth, but in general, it occurs later in life.

    Treatment of Hernia


    A hernia doctor will diagnose a hernia in a physical examination. The diagnosis of a hernia is easier as a bulge in the area where the hernia is present will be visible. For an accurate diagnosis, a patient may be asked to stand, strain or cough. In addition, imaging tests such as an MRI, CT scan, or abdominal ultrasound might be needed if the bulge isn’t readily apparent.


    At Surgicare in India, we treat hernia with laparoscopic hernia repair as it has a shorter recovery time. The modern daycare surgical procedure entails the insertion of a laparoscope, a medical device that has an inbuilt camera, through a small incision in the abdomen. Once the incision is done, surgeons can view the internal structures with the camera. The surgeon can place a 3D Mesh to strengthen the weak muscle. The best hernia repair treatments are painless and performed when the patient is under anesthesia. A patient can go home the next day and recover to the fullest in less than a week after laparoscopic hernia repair.

    Frequently   Asked Questions

    If you notice a bulge or swelling near your stomach, abdomen or groin, you may have a hernia. You should immediately consult a doctor and get diagnosed.

    If your hernia pains, or if it seems to be continuously growing, the doctor may suggest surgery. Most of the hernia surgeries are done on an outpatient basis. The doctor will make an incision and then he'll either put the tissue back in position or remove it.

    A hernia can turn severe if it is left untreated. The organ might get strangulated which can further cause complications in the body.

    In most cases, the hernia won't heal on its own and neither would home treatment help. It needs surgical repair to resolve the problem such as pain, discomfort, and bulge. If the hernia does not cause problems, you need not have a surgical procedure soon but you better plan ahead.

    A strangulated hernia is a complicated medical condition that can be life-threatening as well. The fatty tissue of the small intestine bulges through a weakened area of the abdominal muscles. The muscle then clamps down, cutting off the blood supply to the small intestine. It deters the blood supply to the bowel which leads to unpleasant symptoms. It is extremely painful and is a surgical emergency.
