Self-schedule a consultation with a hernia surgeon now. Choose a time that works for you.
A hernia is a defect in the abdominal muscle or tendons that allow intra-abdominal content, such as intestines and fatty tissue, to protrude through the tissues under the skin.
Ultimately, all hernias are caused by a combination of pressure and weakness of muscle or fascia. The pressure pushes an organ or tissue through the opening or weak spot. Sometimes, the muscle weakness is present at birth, as in some groin and umbilical hernias; more often, it occurs later in life. Learn more about the types of hernias, as well as symptoms and risk factors.
