Hernia treatments

Hernias are amongst the most common conditions treated by surgeons. In the UK alone approximately 75,000 people undergo surgical repair of groin hernias every year.

Hernias can occur all over the body but most commonly affect the abdomen. They are usually caused by weakness in the muscle layer of the abdominal wall which allows an organ, which should remain within the abdominal cavity, to migrate through the weakness to a part of the body in which it should not usually be present.
