HERNIA Minimally Invasive Surgery
A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall that tissue or organs protrude through. The most common form of hernia is an inguinal hernia which causes swelling and pain and may feel like a bulge or bump under the skin. Hernia surgery is often recommended to prevent future complications including bowel obstruction and bowel strangulation.
