As the name suggests, incisional hernias occur in places where surgical incisions or cuts from injuries have occurred in the past. The muscle wall is often weakened in these areas. This means that pressure from internal organs and tissues can create a gap or tear in the muscles that allows tissue to slip outward, creating a bulge. Dr. Rick Ngo and the Texas Hernia Specialist team perform minimally invasive surgery and advanced hernia treatments that reduce recovery times and provide a comfortable solution for your personal situation.
What Is an Incisional Hernia?
An incisional hernia is an outward bulge of tissue or organs that occurs specifically in areas that have been injured or weakened by surgery. Other serious accidents and injuries can also cause incisional hernias that are non-surgical. Depending on where these hernias occur, they could result in intestinal issues. At Texas Hernia Specialist, we offer proven herniorrhaphy options that will help our patients resolve hernia issues quickly.
Why Consider Minimally Invasive Hernia Surgery?
Dr. Ngo performs minimally invasive surgery for incisional hernias. This procedure offers substantial benefits for patients:
- Smaller incisions mean less damage to tissues.
- In most cases, patients can resume their normal activities within a day or two of surgery.
- Minimally invasive surgery typically involves much less pain and discomfort.
- This method allows for faster hernia surgery recovery.
- Studies have shown a lower risk of infection with laparoscopic minimally invasive procedures.
