Hernias occur when a weak abdominal
wall allows a piece of the intestine or other tissue to slip
through, often creating a noticeable lump. They either develop
slowly over months or years or develop very suddenly.
Hernia surgery is critical for repairing the opening or weakness in the abdominal wall. If the opening is not repaired, tissues can become entrapped, weakening blood supply to those areas.
In this segment, Dr. Ivanesa Pardo, discusses treatment for hernias to help determine the most effective repair surgery for you.
