Hernia surgery stands as one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in the United States, with over 1 million hernia repairs conducted annually. A hernia, a common medical condition, occurs when a defect or hole forms in the abdominal wall, leading to the characteristic bulge often accompanied by discomfort. Hernias can manifest in various locations, each classified based on their specific site. Among the most prevalent forms is the Inguinal Hernia, frequently found in the groin area, especially in men. Additional types include umbilical, ventral, femoral, and incisional hernias, with the latter potentially arising after abdominal surgery. Certain factors, such as obesity, chronic constipation, persistent coughing, or occupations involving heavy lifting, can elevate the risk of hernia development.
Hernia surgery encompasses a range of approaches, with options for open or minimally invasive procedures. The choice between these approaches depends on the patient's individual circumstances, and the decision is made to optimize outcomes. Minimally invasive methods involve the use of advanced tools like laparoscopes or the da Vinci Robot, offering their unique advantages and considerations.
