What Is Hernia Surgery?
Hernia surgery is a reparative reconstructive plastic surgery to repair hernias in the abdomen. Specifically, hernia surgery targets a hernia that was formed as a result of previous abdominal incisions. All incisions along the abdomen have a risk of developing a hernia. Hernia surgery repairs the hernia and allows you to continue living a healthy life.
How is Hernia Surgery Performed?
Different physicians have different ways of performing hernia surgery, so be sure to trust a physician with experience for your hernia surgery. Dr. Schimpf is extremely experienced and has worked closely with gastrointestinal surgeons and gastric bypass surgeons to research and repair hernias in the past. Dr. Schimpf now uses a technique called component separation with inlay using a biologic graft. He has found his technique to be extremely successful, even for patients who have suffered from multiple unsuccessful hernia repair treatments in their past.
Benefits of a Hernia Surgery
Hernia surgeries can do more than repair a hernia. Additionally, they can be combined with a panniculectomy or abdominoplasty to a repair your hernia while altering your physical appearance or alleviating other symptoms, such as from panniculitis.
