Hernia Surgery

Minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques

A hernia occurs when the inside layers of the abdominal wall weaken, allowing tissue to bulge out of the weakened area. During hernia repair, the bulging tissue is pushed back in and the abdominal wall is repaired using stitches or mesh.

Hernia Surgery

Whenever possible, Dallas Regional Medical Center’s surgeons use minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques for hernia repair. Laparoscopic hernia surgery utilizes a thin, telescope-like instrument known as an endoscope that is inserted through a small incision. The endoscope is fitted with a tiny video camera that allows the surgeon to visualize the area on the screen and repair the weakened area. Because the procedure only requires small incisions, patients have less scarring, and pain and a quicker recovery.

Our surgeons are well equipped to perform both laparoscopic and conventional hernia repair techniques for various types of hernias, including:

  • Epigastric (mid abdomen)
  • Hiatal (upper stomach)
  • Incisional (occurring through a scar)
  • Inguinal (groin)
  • Femoral (upper thigh)
  • Umbilical (belly button)
