HOW ARE ABDOMINAL WALL HERNIAS TREATED?
The only way to fix the defect in the abdominal wall is by surgery. This can be by either open or keyhole techniques, depending on the type and location of the hernia(s).
Symptoms of a hernia can sometimes be controlled by special supporting garments or a truss. These are generally uncomfortable, and the hernia re-appears when they are removed.

Without surgery, hernias will tend to deteriorate over time and may cause other problems including muscular strains and chronic pain. There is also the risk incarceration and strangulation.
