The Inguinal hernia is most common in men than
on women. In the area between the
abdomen and the thigh appears a protuberance or a bulge. This is due because of
pressure on a weak spot in the muscle tissue that causes bulge. The abdominal
fat or part of the small tissue bulges out through the weak spot. Some bulges
are very painful as a burn, but there are a small percentage of bulges that are
not painful. Some of the symptoms are the bulge or protuberance on the area
between the abdomen and the thigh called groin. The bulge may increase in size,
sudden pain, nausea and vomiting also
How do we perform Inguinal Hernia Surgery?

The surgeon will make a small incision very near the bulge area. The hernia fat
will be removing or if it is your intestines will be place back in their proper
place by your surgeon. The abdominal muscle cavity will be stitched, and
sometimes surgeon strengths the weak abdominal tissue using mesh.
