Hernia Treatment in Tamarac, FL

What Is A Hernia?

A hernia is a bulge in the abdomen that develops due to one of the internal organs pushing out through a weak spot in the inner abdominal wall. While not every hernia is painful, they are potentially dangerous if not addressed with surgery. Hernias are often diagnosed according to where they appear with some of the most common examples being:

  • Inguinal hernia: Occurs in the lower abdomen or groin area
  • Ventral hernia: Occurs higher up on the abdomen, often as a result of muscle strain, obesity, or pregnancy
  • Umbilical hernia: Occurs near the belly button
  • Incisional hernia: May develop from an incision made during a previous abdominal surgery
  • Complex/complicated hernia: Refers to a hernia that still exists despite previous repair surgeries

If you've noticed an unexplained bulge around your groin or abdomen that may or may not be accompanied by pain, the team at Fernando E Bayron MD may be able to assist with expert hernia treatment. The team at our Tamarac, FL practice has experience dealing with a wide range of abdominal and bariatric issues, including various kinds of hernias. Schedule a consultation at our office at your earliest convenience to receive a diagnosis and discuss the next steps.

How Does Hernia Treatment Work?

Hernia repair surgery at Fernando E Bayron MD is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed laparoscopically using general anesthesia. After you're sedated, we'll create a series of tiny incisions around the treatment area so we can insert the camera, light, and surgical instruments. We'll use these tools to push the bulging area back into its proper position before closing the abdominal wall with sutures or surgical mesh. The length of time this surgery takes will depend on the extent of the hernia and its location. Once the hernia is repaired, you may be discharged the same day, or you may need to stay in the hospital for a day or two so we can monitor your recovery. Most patients recover from hernia treatment within two weeks, but you should avoid any heavy activities for at least a month.

What Are the Benefits of Hernia Treatment?

Hernias do not heal on their own and almost always need to be treated with a surgical procedure to address the issue. The benefits of hernia surgery at our Tamarac, FL practice include:

  • Elimination of pain from existing hernia
  • Removal of concerning or unsightly bulging under the skin
  • Prevents potential health complications from untreated hernia
  • Innovative approach limits risks of scarring or surgical complications
