Best Hospital For Hernia Treatment In Gurgaon

What is hernia?

A hernia is a medical condition that happens when an internal part of the body forces through a weakness in the muscle or surrounding tissue wall. In some cases, the hernia does not show any symptoms or sometimes only a few symptoms, although the affected individual can experience swelling or lump in their tummy (abdomen) or groin area.

This lump caused by a hernia can often be pushed back in or sometimes disappear once the person lies down. Force full activities like coughing or straining may cause the lump to appear again.

Type of Hernia conditions:

Inguinal Hernia:

Inguinal hernia occurs when fatty tissue or a part of the bowel pushes through into the groin area, mostly at the top of the inner thigh. This is the most common type of hernia, and it mainly affects men due to a natural weakness of the muscles in this area. It is usually related to aging or due to repeated strain on the abdomen. About 90% of all groin hernias are inguinal in nature.

Incisional Hernias:

Incisional hernia occurs when the intestine pushes through the abdominal wall, frequently at the site of abdominal surgery performed previously. This condition affects old people or overweight people who are inactive after surgery of the abdomen area.

Femoral Hernia:

Femoral hernia is more are common in women, especially pregnant or obese females, due to their wider bone structure

Umbilical Hernias:

These types of hernia occur when part of the small intestine passes through the abdominal wall near the navel. Common in newborns, it also commonly affects obese females or those who have multiple pregnancies.

Hiatus Hernias:

In this condition, some part of the stomach pushes up into the chest by squeezing through an opening in the diaphragm. This type of condition may not show any noticeable symptoms, but it can cause heartburn.

Epigastric Hernias:

This occurs when fat tissue pushes through the abdomen area and affects the body area above the navel and below the area of the sternum.

Diaphragmatic Hernias:

This occurs when organs in the abdomen move into the chest through an opening in the diaphragm. This condition mostly affects babies whose diaphragms don't develop properly in the mother's womb, but it can also affect adults.

Muscle Hernia:

This occurs when part of a muscle pushes through the abdomen. This mostly occurs in leg muscles due to sports injuries.

Strangulated hernia and obstructed bowel movements are a sign of medical emergency and in such a case, immediate consultation and treatment from an expert is required.

How is hernia treated?

  • Truss: The patient is also asked to wear a truss to ease the symptoms of a hernia. This is a type of supportive undergarment that carries the hernia in-situ. The patient may use a truss after consulting a doctor so that it fits properly before using it.
  • In hiatal or stomach hernia, over-the-counter and some prescription medications are prescribed to reduce the release of stomach acid and help relieve discomfort and improve symptoms in the patient.
  • Surgical Treatment: The repair through surgery is the most effective treatment for correcting hernia. The need to undergo surgery also depends on the size and severity of the hernia symptoms in an individual.
    • Open surgery: Open surgery involves repairing and closing the hernia using sutures. Then the surgical cut is sealed with sutures, staples, or surgical glue. This helps to make the skin or inside muscles stringer that prevent the protruding of the internal body organ.
    • Keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery: It is a less invasive treatment and must be performed by an expert. Several smaller cuts are made that help the surgeon to perform the surgery. It uses various special instruments to repair the hernia. The stomach is filled with carbon dioxide gas that improves visualization and space, and the whole surgery is performed under general anesthetic. Surgical repair of a hernia guided by a laparoscope offers faster recovery because of small incisions.

One can go home on the same day or day after surgery and full recovery can take place within a few weeks.
