University Hospitals Surgeons Offer Advanced Hernia Treatment

The most common type of hernia occurs when there is a tear or weakness in the abdominal wall muscles and an organ (most often the intestines) or body fat may push out of its normal place in the abdomen. This bulge or protrusion is generally known as a hernia. Though hernias are often painless, they can cause discomfort and should never be ignored.
