What is a Hernia?

A hernia happens when an organ or other body part pushes through a weak section of muscle or tissue. It can occur in several different places in your body.

A hernia cannot heal on its own, so surgery is the only way to repair it. You should have surgery as soon as possible after a hernia develops to improve your chances of a successful recovery. Learn more about the types of hernias we treat.

Abdominal Wall Reconstruction

You might need abdominal wall reconstruction if you have a large hernia that surgeons cannot correct with other surgery methods. You may also need it after multiple abdominal surgeries, which can weaken the abdominal wall and increase hernia risk.

Our experienced surgeons can do abdominal wall reconstruction as an open surgery or a minimally invasive procedure. We perform many abdominal wall reconstructions each year and have extensive experience with these complex procedures.

Why Choose us for your Hernia Surgery?

About half of all hernia surgeries in the U.S. are done as traditional (open) surgeries. At Memorial Healthcare System we do the majority of surgeries as minimally invasive procedures. This approach minimizes the time you spend in the hospital or recovering at home after surgery.
