Types of Hernias Treated at Pinehurst Surgical Clinic
There are three primary types of hernias seen in our patients in Pinehurst, Rockingham, Raeford, Laurinburg and surrounding areas:
- Inguinal hernia – Most common in men, this type of hernia occurs when a small portion of soft tissue (usually the intestine) protrudes through a weakened lower abdominal wall.
- Femoral hernia – Most common in women, this type of hernia occurs when part of the intestine protrudes through the femoral canal, just at the top of the thigh.
- Umbilical hernia – Most common in children, this type of hernia occurs when the abdominal wall is weakened around the navel area.
The following signs and symptoms may indicate a hernia problem:
- Lump in the groin or abdominal area
- Pain or achiness around the localized area
- Lump growth as the result of an increase in abdominal pressure, such as coughing, sneezing, etc.
- Nausea or vomiting
Central NC’s Choice for Inguinal, Femoral & Umbilical Hernia Repair
Although a hernia is not dangerous in and of itself, it can often lead to serious complications, such as blood clots and blocked bowels. Because hernias do not go away on their own, professional medical treatment, such as surgery, is often required to effectively eliminate the problem.
