AdventHealth Health Hub: What To Do About Hernias
AdventHealth offers solutions to this common medical condition.
A hernia happens when an intestine, tissue or organ pushes through the weakened muscle wall that holds it in. Often, the muscle wall weakens from overexertion, like from heavy lifting, pregnancy, coughing or straining during a bowel movement. Hernias usually occur in the abdominal cavity — between your shoulders and hips — and are more common in men. Most importantly, hernias are very treatable with the right care.
MINIMALLY INVASIVE HERNIA REPAIR
Once a hernia grows painful and affects your everyday life, you’ll likely need surgery to repair it. At AdventHealth, hernia surgery is more advanced than ever, and through minimally invasive procedures, we can get you back to the activities you love sooner.
Our experienced surgeons repair hernias with robotic-assisted techniques — performed at every AdventHealth location — or laparoscopically with only a few tiny incisions. In these procedures, the hole in the muscle wall will be repaired while keeping the surrounding tissues safe.
Compared to traditional or open surgery, the minimally invasive hernia repairs performed by AdventHealth surgeons mean less scarring, fewer incisions and, best of all, a shorter recovery time for you.
