A hernia is a medical condition characterised by the protrusion of an organ or tissue through an abnormal opening or weakened muscle wall in the body. It can result in a visible bulge or lump, often accompanied by discomfort or pain. Hernias can occur in various locations, such as the abdomen, groin, or diaphragm, and they may require surgical intervention to repair the weakened area and reposition the displaced tissue or organ.
Proper treatment and medications help to manage the symptoms of the disease. These bulges slip inwards when the body is in a relaxed position. Surgery is one of the highly opted ways to cure hernia. Different types of surgeries are used to get rid of the situation. These days, robotic hernia surgery is the choice of doctors for its precision and high chances of success.
