A hernia occurs when the tissue or muscle that holds your organs opens as a result of a forced push of the organs. Often, it could be a weakened abdominal wall which causes intestines to breakthrough. Hernias are generally produced in a person’s abdomen – located anywhere between the hips and chest. However, in some cases, they can occur in the groin and upper thighs as well. Hernias might not be life-threatening in most cases, but they do not repair themselves. Hernia repair surgery may be required or recommended to prevent complications in the future. Dr. Dasari performs minimally invasive hernia repair at Summerlin Hospital or an outpatient surgery center closest to his patients.
A common sign of a hernia is a bulge that can be observed by the naked eye. Other symptoms can be heartburn, cough, or difficulty in swallowing. Acute hernia symptoms include excruciating pain, constipation, and vomiting. A dragging sensation, weakness, or pressure in the groin is also symptoms of a hernia. Whenever you sense your hernia is becoming soft and you are unable to push it, it is best to seek a hernia repair surgeon in Summerlin immediately. This is because hernias can cause infection in your organs or tissues, resulting in blockage and serious complications.
