Difficulty in swallowing
Pain in abdomen
Acidity
Physical Examination: Your surgeon examines the lump by making you cough, stand, and sit to check for any change in the size of the bulge/lump
Imaging Techniques: Your surgeon may advise certain radiological investigations such as abdominal ultrasound, CT/MRI scan, or an endoscopy
According to location
Inguinal hernia:
  • The most common type of hernia
  • Usually occurs in the groin area
Incisional hernia: Occurs when the tissue pushes through a scar from an operation
Femoral hernia: Occurs when the tissue or part of intestine pushes through the groin
Umbilical hernia: Occurs when the tissue or part of intestine pushes through near your belly button
Hiatal (Hiatus) hernia: Occurs when part of the stomach pushes through the diaphragm

Reducible: Can be gently pushed back into its place
Irreducible: Cannot be pushed back into its place
Strangulated: Occurs when the organ is trapped inside the hernia, blocking blood supply

Surgical Options
Your Practo Care doctor will examine you and suggest the treatment that is right for you based on your complaints, physical examination, type, and the severity of your hernia.
  • It is the oldest type of hernia surgery
  • An incision (cut) is made right over the hernia to access it
  • Bulged tissue is returned to its original location. Hernia sac may or may not be removed
  • The skin and the weakened muscle opening over the hernia are reinforced and closed with sutures (stitches)
  • In hernioplasty, instead of stitching the muscle opening shut, a mesh is used
  • Mesh is a flat, sterile sheet of plastic or biological material that is used to cover the hernia
  • This mesh is stitched into the healthy tissues that surround the hernia. This enables the damaged tissue to use the mesh as a support to regrow
  • It is performed under general anaesthesia
  • Small incisions (two to four in number) are made in the upper and lower abdomen
  • The abdomen is filled with a harmless gas to have a better look at the organs
  • A thin, lighted scope called laparoscope, is inserted through the incision
  • The herniated body part is moved back to its original position by placing a mesh patch over the weakened portion of the abdominal wall
  • The mesh is then secured with the help of staples or stitches
  • Incision is then closed with sutures (stitches)/staples
  • Used for smaller hernias and to repair the abdominal wall
  • Same as laparoscopic hernia repair
  • Smaller incisions are made
  • Electronic devices with high tech cameras are used to aid the surgeon during the procedure
  • Robotic hands perform the surgery, controlled by the surgeon at the console
Medications have a minimal role to play in the treatment of hernias

Do you have insurance?
YesNo
What happens if you delay the treatment/surgery?
Certain complications may arise if the hernia is left untreated:
Bowel obstruction: Hernia blocks the bowel, making it difficult to pass stools
Incarceration: Intestine remains trapped inside the hernia
Large haemorrhoids
Strangulation: The blood supply to the herniated tissue stops
FAQs
Hernias cannot be treated with medications. Medications can only help in relieving the symptom (pain) for some time. Hernias have to be removed surgically.
Hernia surgeries are usually performed by general surgeons or laparoscopic surgeons.
Before the surgery, your surgeon may recommend certain instructions and restrictions. These may include stopping medications like antiplatelet, NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) a week before the surgery and not eating on the day of the surgery. Additionally, depending on the type of surgery chosen, you may be asked to follow specific instructions/restrictions.
Contact your doctor immediately if you have:
1. High fever
2. Severe pain or swelling at the surgical site
3. Bleeding from the incision (cut) site
4. Discoloured and foul-smelling fluids coming out from the incision site
5. If the incision becomes swollen or tender (delicate to touch)
Complications with hernia surgery are rare. However, the complications may include infection, bleeding from the site of incision (cut), tingling and numbness in the affected area, pain, and sometimes injuries to nearby organs.
Hernias do not resolve spontaneously and require surgical intervention. There are complications associated with untreated hernias, and it is best that you seek a professional opinion at the earliest.
Hernias may recur months or even years after a hernia surgery. If they reappear near or at the previous location, consult your doctor/surgeon immediately.

I’d definitely recommend Practo Care for their support at every step of my pilonidal sinus treatment. The doctor was highly experienced and the surgery went well. The team took care of everything from day one to the day of discharge very efficiently.
