Hernias develop when an organ or tissue protrudes through weakened muscle walls encircling the abdominal cavity. While the bulge typically involves intestines, in certain cases, part of the stomach may also be included in the protrusion, contingent on the hernia's location.

Hernias occur when an organ or tissue pushes through weakened muscle walls surrounding the abdominal cavity. While these protrusions typically involve intestines, in some cases, part of the stomach may also be involved, depending on the hernia's location.

Hernias can appear in various areas such as the groin, navel, or upper thigh. Although they are generally not life-threatening, hernias require appropriate treatment for resolution, as they do not naturally heal on their own. Surgical intervention is the recommended course of action, with laparoscopic hernia treatment being a rational and safe option, as endorsed by the USFDA. If you notice an abdominal bulge accompanied by even mild discomfort, it is advisable to consult with the hernia specialists at Pilot Heal in Delhi for a comprehensive evaluation.

For an accurate diagnosis, patients may be asked to stand, strain, or cough. The doctor also reviews the patient's medical history.

As affirmed by experienced medical professionals, surgery is the optimal approach for addressing various types of hernias. Hernias can exist with or without symptoms, yet seeking proper treatment is crucial to prevent potential complications such as intestinal blockage or strangulation. Surgical management of hernias encompasses both open and laparoscopic techniques.

Open surgery involves creating incisions around the affected area. The displaced tissues are repositioned, and a mesh is inserted to reinforce the abdominal muscles and secure the organ in its correct position. Laparoscopic surgery involves making 3-4 small incisions. The protruding tissues are carefully repositioned, and if necessary, a mesh is used to bolster the abdominal wall and maintain the proper organ alignment.
