A hernia occurs when the muscle or tissue that keeps an organ in place, opens as a result of a thrust of that particular organ. A delicate abdominal wall can cause the intestines to breakthrough easier, creating a hernia.
Hernias commonly originate in the abdominal area, but can also occur in the upper thighs and groin. In most cases, Hernias are not dangerous but cannot be repaired on their own. For a complete hernia repair, Dr. Dasari may prescribe minimally invasive surgery to properly repair the hernia for good. Dr. Dasari performs hernia repair treatments at Boulder City Hospital or an outpatient surgery center nearest to his patients.
The most common sign of a hernia is a bulge that can be viewed easily. Some of the other symptoms related to hernia complications can be cough, heartburn, and a struggle to swallow. In extreme cases, symptoms can be vomiting, constipation, and agonizing pain. In some patients, the sensation of dragging, pressure, or weakness in the groin area can also be a symptom of an inguinal hernia. If you ever feel that your hernia is getting soft and you are unable to push it in, it may be strongly advised to consult a hernia doctor like Dr. Dasari immediately. Hernias can result in blockage and serious complications as a result of an infection in your tissues or organs.
The surgical options differ from patient to patient. Location of the hernia is the main indicator of the type of surgical treatment that may be needed. There are 2 main surgical options for hernia repair treatment:
The patient is required to be under anesthesia or sedation. The hernia is closed by the use of sutures, mesh, or in some cases both. With the help of staples, sutures, or surgical glue the surgical wound is then stitched. There is a possibility that you may be asked to move around after the surgery takes place but it may take a few weeks before you are back to normal activities.
This procedure involves making small incisions in the abdomen of an individual by using general anesthesia. To make the internal organs visible enough the abdomen is inflated by the utilization of gas. A tiny tube that consists of a laparoscope is then inserted through an incision. The hernia is fixed eventually with the use of a systematic mesh. This is required in cases where there have been surgeries
performed repeatedly – so the previously left scars are evaded. It may take a few weeks for you to get back to your normal activities.
