Hernia Repair Female

Hernia Repair Female at Mount Stuart Hospital

An inguinal hernia happens when there is a weakness in the muscles at the lower part of the abdomen, at your inguinal canal. Some of the contents of your abdomen push through your abdominal wall and produce a lump called an inguinal hernia.

Hernias do not go away on their own. Surgery is often recommended. An inguinal hernia repair puts a hernia lump back into its correct place and strengthens the abdominal wall to prevent the hernia from reoccurring.

Hernia repair for women is often performed using open inguinal surgery. Keyhole inguinal surgery is usually only recommended for inguinal hernias that are recurrent or bilateral. Your doctor will discuss this with you and their recommendations for treatment.
