A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. There are different types of hernias, depending on the part of the body where they occur:

Inguinal hernia in Tijuana

An inguinal hernia occurs when a piece of tissue, such as a part of the intestine, pushes out through a weakened place in the abdominal muscles. The lump that occurs can be painful, especially when coughing, bending over, or lifting a heavy object. However, many hernias are painless. It is necessary to perform an inguinal hernia surgery in Tijuana to treat this condition.

If you are looking for an inguinal hernia surgeon in Tijuana, Dr. Rene Armenta is the one.

Umbilical Hernia in Tijuana

An umbilical hernia occurs when a part of the intestine protrudes through the opening of the abdominal muscles near the navel. Umbilical hernias are common and generally harmless.

Umbilical hernias are more common in babies, but they can affect adults as well. In a baby, an umbilical hernia may be more obvious when the baby cries, causing the belly button to stick out. This is a classic sign of an umbilical hernia.

Get in touch with our surgeon for umbilical hernia in Tijuana.

Hiatal hernia in Tijuana

Hiatal hernia occurs when the upper part of the stomach protrudes through the large muscle that separates the abdomen from the chest (diaphragm).

The diaphragm has a small opening (hiatus) through which the feeding tube (esophagus) passes before joining the stomach. In hiatal hernia, the stomach pushes up to pass through this hole and into the chest.

Hiatal hernia surgery in Tijuana is one of Dr. Rene Armenta’s specialties. When the hiatal hernia is small it does not usually cause problems. You may never find out you have one unless your doctor discovers it while checking for another condition.

Ventral Hernia in Tijuana

A ventral hernia is a bulge of tissue through an opening of weakness within the muscles of the abdominal wall. It can occur anywhere on the abdominal wall.

Many are called incisional hernias because they form at the healed site of past surgical incisions. Here, the layers of the abdominal wall have become weak or thin, allowing the contents of the abdominal cavity to pass through.

In a strangulated ventral hernia, the intestinal tissue is firmly trapped within an opening in the abdominal wall. This tissue cannot be pushed into the abdominal cavity and its blood flow is cut off. This type of ventral hernia is an emergency that requires surgery.

Femoral Hernia in Tijuana

A femoral hernia is a bulge in the upper thigh near the groin. Most of the time, there is no clear cause of a hernia. Some hernias may be present at birth (congenital), but are not noticed until later in life. Some factors that contribute to the appearance of a hernia include:

  • Chronic constipation
  • Chronic cough
  • Lifting heavy objects
  • Obesity
  • Straining to urinate due to an enlarged prostate

Contact our surgeon specialized in femoral hernia in Tijuana.

Not all hernias need repair, especially in babies or young children, where the umbilical hernia may close on its own. However, in many cases surgery may be required to repair the weakened area. Your doctor may recommend surgical hernia repair:

  • If the hernia is painful.
  • If the hernia is strangulated. This means that the tissue is trapped or twisted, and it may not be getting enough blood. A strangulated hernia is dangerous.
  • To prevent the hernia from becoming painful or strangulated.

If your hernia does not require immediate surgery, your surgeon may recommend:

  • Using a special device called a truss to hold the tissues in place.
