Hernias

A hernia exists where part of the abdominal wall is weakened, and the contents of the abdomen push through to the outside. This is most commonly seen in the groin area but can occur in other places. Surgical treatment is usually quite straightforward and involves returning the abdominal contents to the inside and then reinforcing the abdominal wall in some way.

I specialise in laparoscopic repair of hernias, particularly groin hernias. Laparoscopic repair offers the best chance of quick recovery and most groin hernias are suitable for repair using this technique.
