Inguinal Hernia Repair Surgery Details
A hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue called fascia. This can be painful as it might obstruct the supply of blood to that part of the organ and you feel very uncomfortable. In an inguinal hernia, the intestine or the bladder protrudes through the abdominal wall into the inguinal canal in the groin. This canal allows your testis to descend into the scrotum sac before your birth. About 96% of all groin hernias are inguinal, and most occur in men.
