A hernia is a situation when the abdominal muscles face a hole inside it, and the organs & tissue come outside. These tissues often can create bulges or lump below the skin. Many complain that Hernia is painful, whereas many don’t feel any pain. People normally suffer from hernias due to sports injuries. However, all hernias do not develop due to injuries.

Different types of Hernia

At present, worldwide, huge numbers of people are suffering from Hernia. Hernia can be of different types, and all need to understand the different types of Hernia.

  • Inguinal Hernia- This Hernia grows in the groin area. Almost 75% of abdominal Hernia develops due to inguinal Hernia.
  • Incisional Hernia- This Hernia mainly develops post-surgery. Here the organs come out of the scars after an incision during surgery.
  • Hiatal Hernia- People who are suffering from GERD mainly suffer from this Hernia. Here the stomach’s upper portion comes up to the chest.

Treatment for Hernia

Many times hernias do not cause any pain, and these are very small in size. In these situations, doctors may suggest you watch the situation. Doctors will also suggest you wear a backup truss which can help you to stay safe. Well, in case of enlarged hernias, doctors always suggest surgical treatment. Normally two types of treatment options are available

  • Open hernia repair
  • Minimally invasive hernia repair.

Open Hernia Treatment

Open Hernia Surgery is suggested for those who are suffering from enlarged hernias. This treatment is done using local or general anesthesia. Here doctors will make an incision in the groin area and push back the tissues inside the abdomen.

Minimally invasive treatment

Here doctors need to make small incisions in the abdomen using laparoscopic instruments. People will feel less discomfort than open hernia treatment after having minimally invasive hernia treatment.
