There may be various reasons as to why hernia may occur and it may affect both men and women. So what exactly is a hernia? Hernia is when an organ protrudes through the walls of the muscle that generally has it. The most common occurrence of this condition is in the abdominal wall, when the intestine pushes through a weak spot in the wall. The three types of hernia surgery include; inguinal hernia surgery, umbilical hernia surgery and ventral hernia surgery. The most common type of surgery is an inguinal hernia surgery. A hernia repair surgery is the only ideal option to overcome the situation because there are currently no non-surgical options to get rid of hernia.

Laparoscopic hernia surgery: In this treatment technique, your doctor will make numerous tiny incisions in the lower abdomen area and will insert a special instrument for inspecting and fixing the hernia. A piece of mesh will be typically used for closing and strengthening the walls of the abdomen.
