An incisional hernia is a condition in which a piece of abdominal organ, such as the intestine, protrudes through an opening at or near the site of a prior surgical incision.
Once an incision is made through the abdominal wall, that area is always weaker, making it prone to hernia formation. Incisional hernias may cause a bulge or pain and can develop at any time after the original surgery.
Laparoscopic Incisional Hernia Repair is a new technique to fix tears in the abdominal wall (muscle) using small incisions, telescopes and a patch (mesh). This minimally invasive technique allows the patient to return to work and normal activities sooner.
Typically, if you have previously experienced a hernia, you will be able to tell if another is developing. If you suspect you might have an incisional hernia, get in touch with our team today on 6311 7578.
