What is Hernia?
A hernia occurs when an organ or tissue protrudes through a weak spot in the surrounding muscle or connective tissue. Common symptoms include a visible bulge, pain or discomfort, and a feeling of heaviness in the affected area. Diagnosis typically involves a physical examination and may require imaging tests such as ultrasound or CT scan.

Types of Hernia

  • Inguinal Hernia: Most common type, occurring in the groin area.
  • Femoral Hernia: Less common, but more likely to cause complications, occurring in the upper thigh or groin.
  • Umbilical Hernia: Occurs near the belly button, often in infants, pregnant women, or obese individuals.
  • Incisional Hernia: Develops at the site of a previous surgical incision.
  • Hiatal Hernia: Involves the stomach protruding through the diaphragm into the chest cavity.

Treatment for Types of Hernia

  • Non-Surgical Treatment: Lifestyle changes, such as weight loss and avoiding heavy lifting, may relieve symptoms. Wearing supportive garments, such as hernia belts, can also provide temporary relief.
  • Surgical Treatment: Depending on the type and severity of the hernia, surgical intervention may be necessary. Neo TrueNorth offers various surgical options, including laparoscopic procedures, open procedures, and reconstructive surgery, tailored to each patient’s needs.
  • Laparoscopic Procedures: Minimally invasive technique with smaller incisions, resulting in less post-operative pain and quicker recovery.
  • Open Procedures: Traditional approach for complex hernias or specific medical conditions, ensuring comprehensive care and optimal recovery.
  • Reconstructive Surgery: For significant tissue damage or previous hernia repair failures, specialized surgery is available to reconstruct the weakened area and prevent recurrence.
  • Mesh for Hernia RepairNeo TrueNorth utilizes high-quality, biocompatible mesh materials to reinforce the weakened abdominal wall during hernia repair surgeries. Mesh reinforcement reduces the risk of hernia recurrence and promotes long-term success.
