What is a hernia?

Hernias are bulges in the belly where intestines and abdominal fat come out under the skin through a defect or hole or weak spot in the abdomen. The defect may be in a scar from a previous operation or a naturally present gap in the abdomen. Hence, the common sites for hernias are the groin, navel, abdomen, or a previous operation site. A hernia is becoming a very prevalent disease these days and people are availing hernia surgery to address them effectively. A hernia does now not get higher through the years, nor will it depart through itself. There are no exercises or physical therapy regimens or yoga that can make a hernia depart. You must visit a hernia specialist doctor/surgeon for hernia treatment.

What are the Types of Hernias?

A hernia can occur anywhere in the abdomen region. Patients will normally notice a lump, or discomfort, at the site of the hernia. The most common types of hernia are:

  • Inguinal hernia – when tissue (usually part of the intestines) pokes through your lower abdomen.
  • Femoral hernia – when tissue pokes through into your groin, or the top of your inner thigh.
  • Incisional hernia – when tissue pokes through a surgical wound or incision that has not fully healed.
  • Umbilical/Paraumbilical hernias – when tissue pokes through the part of the abdomen directly through or immediately around the navel (belly button)
  • Epigastric Hernia – when tissue pokes through into the upper part of the abdomen
  • Spigelian hernia –  This is a rare type of hernia that appears on the edge of one of the rectus abdominis muscles (these muscles are described as the “six-pack” which are readily seen in athletic individuals) 4 or 5 cm below the “belly button”.

What is a complex hernia?

A complex hernia often occurs at the site of an earlier hernia repair and the hernia has returned. With repeated attempts at the repair of hernias, the surrounding tissue can become weak or stretched and it may need to be augmented or replaced. Large hernias of the abdominal wall can result in deformity of the abdominal wall requiring a complex hernia repair. The presence of a fistula makes the repair even more complicated.

What are the causes of Hernia?

Bangalore’s renowned hernia specialist According to Dr. Bhushan Chittawadagi, a hernia develops when an organ or tissue is pushed out by pressure from an opening or weakened muscles in the patient’s fascia. This weak region may be present from birth or develop later in life. Any pressure on the abdomen can cause a hernia, which can occur in the following situations:

  • Chronic sneezing or coughing
  • Diarrhea and constipation
  • Lifting heavy objects without sufficient abdominal muscle support
  • Other factors that might cause weak muscles and hernias include smoking, obesity, lack of a nutritious diet, etc

Signs and Symptoms of Hernia:

  • Lump in the groin area when standing/straining & disappears when reclining
  • Pain at the site of the lump, especially when lifting a heavy object
  • Swelling of the scrotum
  • Excruciating abdominal pain (if you have strangulation)
  • Nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite & pain (if intestinal obstruction occurs)

How Hernia is Diagnosed by Dr.Bhushan Chittawadagi?

When you come to Dr. Bhushan Chittawadgi in Bangalore for a hernia condition or pain diagnosis, Dr. Bhushan Chittawadgi Hernia Specialist Doctor diagnoses in different ways such as

  • Physical Examination: Dr. Bhushan Chittawadgi will review your medical history and perform a physical examination. When you stand up, the lump or swelling of the hernia is visible. It can be felt when you slide your palm over it.
  • Ultrasound/X-ray: Our hernia specialists use ultrasound methods to more accurately diagnose its size and location.

Hernia Treatment in Bangalore:

If the hernia is growing larger or causing pain then hernia surgery is recommended to fix your painful hernias. The hernia surgeon repairs the hernia by sewing the hole in the abdominal wall closed during the surgery. Although surgical options for hernias depend on the location and type of hernia, there are two main types of hernia surgery.

  • Open surgery: Most of the hernias in the abdominal wall are fixed under general anesthesia through cuts or large incisions. The surgeon gently pushes the hernia back into place, tying it off or removing it. Then the surgeon will close the weak area of the muscle where the hernia is pushed through with stitches.
  • Laparoscopic surgery: Laparoscopic hernia surgery is similar to other laparoscopic procedures. The surgeon uses a tiny camera and miniaturized surgical equipment to repair the hernia through small incisions in the lower abdomen. Laparoscopic repair of a hernia is less likely to cause infections. Also, we must follow appropriate precautions after hernia surgery.

It is important to recognize the early symptoms of a hernia because untreated hernias will not heal on their own. However, with early medical care, you can minimize the effects of a hernia and avoid life-threatening complications. Dr. Bhushan Chittawadgi Hernia Surgery Specialists can treat all types of hernias in a painless and patient-friendly manner.
