The Expertise of a Hernia Specialist

Inguinal Hernia

Among the various types of hernias, inguinal hernias are the most commonly encountered. While they can affect both men and women, they are more prevalent in males. Surprisingly, approximately 1 in 4 males will experience an inguinal hernia at some point in their lives. The natural weakness in the groin area, resulting from the descent of the testicle from the abdomen into the scrotum, predisposes males to inguinal hernias.

To minimize post-operative pain and the risk of chronic pain, I utilize a tackless technique for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair.

Haital Hernia

Hiatal hernias typically develop later in life and present with a range of symptoms. These symptoms may include heartburn, nausea, vomiting, regurgitation, abdominal pain, chest pain, difficulty swallowing, bloating, belching, or coughing. The term 'hiatal' originates from 'hiatus,' which refers to an opening, specifically the esophageal hiatus.

Umbilical Hernia

Umbilical hernias are among the most common types of hernias. They occur naturally and can affect individuals of all age groups, from infants to the elderly. These hernias form at the site of the navel, also known as the umbilicus, which represents a natural weak spot in the abdominal wall due to the passage of the umbilical cord.

Umbilical hernias typically present as painless bulges at the navel, which may increase in size and become more painful over time. They tend to cause more symptoms during physical activity or prolonged standing, necessitating the expertise of an experienced hernia surgeon for successful treatment.
