Femoral Hernia

Femoral Hernia at Oaks Hospital

A femoral hernia repair is surgery to move a femoral hernia back into its correct place. It is almost always recommended straight away as a femoral hernia can cause serious complications. 

A femoral hernia occurs when a loop of intestine or fatty tissue pokes through a weak spot in your groin at the top of your inner thigh into an area called the femoral canal.

These hernias are relatively uncommon but appear more often in women because of the wider shape of the female pelvis. They tend to happen: after childbirth, from straining on the toilet with constipation, when moving heavy loads, if you are obese or, if you have a constant, heavy cough. 

Femoral hernia symptoms include a grape-sized lump in your groin that may cause hernia pain. The lump can often be pushed back in or disappear when you lie down.

Ramsay Health Care offers high-quality care for your femoral hernia. Our skilled general surgeons perform femoral hernia repair surgery quickly and conveniently for our patients to prevent complications and, so that they can get back to their daily lifestyles as soon as possible.
