When it comes to inguinal hernia’s, it has been reported that over 750,000 inguinal herniorrhaphies are performed yearly in the United States alone!
This qualifies the inguinal hernia repair as THE most common general surgery procedure performed, not only in Atlanta.
A hernia, by definition, is the protrusion of tissue or part of an organ through the bone, muscular tissue, or the membrane by which it is normally contained.
Important to note; Hernias can be classified as internal or external and as abdominal or thoracic.
Umbilical hernias acccount for 10% of abdominal wall hernias.
Conditions that lead to increased intra-abdominal pressure and weakened fascia at the level of the umbilicus (eg, obesity, ascites, multiple pregnancies, and large abdominal tumors) contribute.
Hernias may be detected on routine physical examination, or patients with hernias may present because of a complication associated with the hernia.
