What is Hernia ?
A hernia occurs when an organ (such as part of the intestine) protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal wall. Hernias are most common in the abdominal area, but they can also appear in the upper thigh, belly button and groin areas.
However, most hernias are not immediately life-threatening but they do not go away on their own. If the hernia in the abdomen is large, the protruding organ becomes strangulated within the muscle or tissue that cuts off the blood supply or obstruct the bowel. This rare condition can be serious and require emergency surgery to prevent potentially dangerous complications – says Dr. Yuvraj, the Best laparoscopic surgeon in Bangalore.
