Hernia is a condition where there is a weakness of the abdominal wall which allows abdominal contents to protrude through the defect on straining.

There are different sites from where hernias can manifest and they are known by different names.  Some of the common hernias are:

  • Inguinal Hernia
  • Umbilical Hernia
  • Femoral Hernia
  • Incisional Hernia
  • Obturator Hernia
  • Spigelian Hernia
  • Ventral Hernia

Mediclinic City Hospital General Surgery Department has specialists experienced in dealing with all types of herniae.  The surgeons are specialists in performing hernia surgeries both by the open and the laparoscopic method. 

All hernias require medical attention because hernias carry the risk of strangulation and emergency presentation with emergency surgery.  Hence it is important to consult a General Surgeon and get the treatment done at an early stage.

The General Surgery team at Mediclinic City Hospital is experienced in performing most surgeries for hernias by the laparoscopic method.  This helps the patient experience less pain and discomfort, smaller scars, early mobilization, early discharge from hospital and early return to work.
