Hernia – Charlotte, North Carolina
A hernia is a tear in the abdominal wall that allows bulging. The most common locations for hernias are the groin, the umbilicus, and at prior surgical incisions. Hernias are diagnosed by detecting a protrusion in the abdomen. That area may occasionally be painful.
Our surgeons specialize in repairing hernias with minimally invasive techniques for smaller scars and less pain. The defects are typically patched with a piece of mesh for a quicker recovery and a more durable repair.
