Laparoscopic Hernia Repair


If you think you are suffering from a hernia, you’re not alone! Hernias are fairly common in the United States; in fact, about 5 million of them are repaired every year. There are many different types of hernias, but the most common ones occur in the abdomen, groin, or esophagus.

Inguinal hernias account for about 2/3 of all hernias. Ninety percent of them occur in men, but women can develop inguinal hernias as well. In women, umbilical or “belly-button” hernias are common, especially after pregnancy.

After developing a hernia, you may wonder if your body can repair it with a little time and rest. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. The only way to relieve the pain and repair a hernia is through surgery. Surgery can seem daunting, but with today’s advanced repair options and Dr. Kyle Dunning’s expertise, it’s probably easier than you think to repair your hernia and get you back to the activities you love.
