About Hernia Surgery
Hernia surgery is a surgical procedure that is used to repair a hernia, which is a condition in which an internal organ or tissue protrudes through a weakened area of muscle or connective tissue.
During the surgery, the surgeon makes an incision at the site of the hernia and pushes the protruding tissue back into the abdominal cavity. The weakened area of muscle or connective tissue is then repaired, typically using a mesh patch to reinforce the area and prevent the hernia from recurring.
General surgeons work closely with other medical professionals to provide comprehensive care to patients.
About General Surgery
General surgery is a medical specialty that focuses on the surgical treatment of a wide range of diseases and conditions.General surgeons are trained to perform surgery on many different parts of the body, including the digestive system, abdomen, breast, skin and soft tissues, and endocrine system.
General surgery procedures can be performed as open surgery, in which a large incision is made in the body, or as minimally invasive surgery, in which small incisions are made and specialized tools and a camera are used to perform the surgery. Minimally invasive surgery, also known as laparoscopic surgery or keyhole surgery, can result in less pain, scarring, and a shorter recovery time compared to open surgery.
As with any surgery, there are risks associated with hernia surgery, including bleeding, infection, and complications related to anesthesia. However, hernia surgery is generally considered safe and effective in repairing hernias and preventing their recurrence.
