Hernia Center

Hernia care is a branch of general surgery involved in the treatment and repair of hernias. Hernias occur when an internal organ pushes through a weak part of the abdominal wall, creating a bulge that can often be seen from the outside. The most common types of hernias include inguinal, epigastric, umbilical, and incisional. Surgery is the only way to treat hernias and, left untreated, they can cause life-threatening complications.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, 25 percent of men and 2 percent of women will have at least one inguinal hernia at some point in their lifetime. Our experienced and well-trained general surgeons work with each patient to find the right approach to their hernia care.

TPMG General Surgery and Hernia Center offers multiple procedures for hernia care using cutting-edge technology. Robotic hernia repair allows surgeons advanced precision while repairing the hernia from the inside rather than the outside, which is less painful and leads to a faster recovery. Our goal is to provide the best possible treatment for our patients and continue to advance the field of hernia care.
