ⓘ Hernia repair

Hernia repair refers to a surgical operation for the correction of a hernia - a bulging of internal organs or tissues through the wall that contains it. It can be of two different types: herniorrhaphy, or hernioplasty. This operation may be performed to correct hernias of the abdomen, groin, diaphragm, brain, or at the site of a previous operation. Hernia repair is often performed as an ambulatory procedure.
