Hernia Surgery

Experts in inguinal, incisional & ventral hernia repair surgery.

Our team of skilled surgeons come with years of experience in treating hernias of all types. In most cases, surgery is the standard treatment for a hernia. It is possible to simply live with a hernia and monitor it, although most hernias become larger and more painful over time.

Depending on the location and severity of your hernia, a surgeon may recommend either minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery, or a more traditional approach. In both procedures, the protruding tissue is put back in place and the damaged muscle wall is stitched back together. If needed, a synthetic reinforcement can be added to reduce the likelihood of another herniation.

The difference between traditional and minimally invasive hernia surgery lies in the way that the surgical site is accessed. In traditional surgery, a single large incision is made in the abdomen or groin (depending on where the hernia is located). In minimally invasive hernia surgery, a surgeon makes a series of several small incisions to access the site and uses a miniature set of surgical tools to complete the operation.

At Florida Medical Clinic, we offer surgical hernia repair for inguinal, incisional, and ventral hernias. Hernia surgery is typically an outpatient procedure, and our skilled surgeons have experience in both traditional and minimally invasive operations. You will be provided with comprehensive instructions for recovery, including preventive care guidelines to reduce the likelihood of future hernias.
