Hernia Surgery in Novi, MI

What Is a Hernia?

A hernia is a protrusion of part of an organ through the muscle wall that surrounds it. A hernia occurs when tissue bulges out through an opening in the muscles. Any part of the abdominal wall can weaken and develop a hernia, but the most common sites are the groin Inguinal, the navel  (adult-umbilical Hernia or ventral_hernia) and a previous surgical incision site. A ventral hernia is a bulge through an opening in the muscles on the abdomen.
