A hernia is a very common medical condition where part of an internal organ protrudes through a weakened area in the body cavity. If your hernia requires surgery, the UConn Health General Surgery team has experience treating all kinds of hernias including inguinal, femoral, ventral, and umbilical. This simple procedure is often performed laparoscopically and done as an outpatient surgery.
For more complex hernias, the specialists at UConn Health are well-versed in complex, abdominal-wall reconstruction. The surgeons treat recurrent hernias, and, in addition to surgery, they will discuss simple actions that can lessen your risk of another hernia occurring in the future.
