A hernia is a weakness of the abdominal wall causing a protrusion of an organ where it does not belong. There are many types of hernias, but the most common ones involve a weakening of the abdominal wall leading to organs bulging through, and causing immense pain. Dr. Gagner repairs multiple types of hernias including hiatal, inguinal, femoral, umbilical, Spigelian, incisional and lumbar hernias. All repairs are done by laparoscopy and often include permanent sutures and/or a mesh. Hernia repairs are out-patient procedures, with patients leaving the clinic the same day of the procedure. Patients need a minimum of 1 week of convalescence to recover from the surgery.
