Hernias occur when an organ or tissue pushes through its usual space; they can be present at birth or develop as time passes. An incisional hernia occurs when muscle weakness caused by previous abdominal surgery allows abdominal tissue to push through the muscle. If the incisional hernia requires surgery, the patient is placed under general anesthesia. For this surgery, the doctor usually creates two incisions around the hernia. Then, he or she will use a laparoscope along with other instruments to correct the hernia, close the muscle wall, and then close the incision. Patients at risk for incisional hernias are usually pregnant or obese. Read More about Incisional Hernia Repair →
