Hernia repair information and locations in Mexico

A hernia is a bulge formed by an organ or tissue that is pushing against a weak area of the muscular wall. Hernias can affect anyone regardless of age and physical activity.
Hernias that are growing larger or causing pain can be repaired with surgery. Depending on the size or location, the surgeon will determine if the repair will be performed as open, laparoscopic, or robotic surgery.
During the procedure, the surgeon will return the protruding tissue to its original place and will place a surgical mesh on the weakened area to prevent the hernia from coming back.

Most common types of hernias

Inguinal hernia
This is the most common hernia and mainly affects men. This occurs when the intestines push against the lower abdominal wall, near the inguinal canal. Men can present swelling in the scrotum.
Hiatal hernia
A hiatal hernia occurs when the upper part of the stomach pushes on the opening of the diaphragm, where the esophagus and stomach join. Some people can experience chest pain, heartburn, and difficulty swallowing.
Umbilical hernia
An umbilical hernia occurs when fatty tissue pushes near the belly button. This hernia mostly affects babies and often closes on its own. Adults with obesity or with previous pregnancies can be affected as well. Some symptoms are abdominal pain, vomiting, and a bulge in the abdomen.
