What is hernia surgery?
It is the surgery or operation to repair a hernia. A hernia is tissue that protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal wall. Your intestine may leak through this weakened area. During surgery to repair the hernia, the bulging tissue is reintroduced. Your abdominal wall is strengthened and supported with sutures (stitches), and sometimes with mesh. This repair can be done through open or laparoscopic surgery. You and your surgeon will determine which type of surgery is ideal for you.
