A hernia is a hole or an area of weakness in muscle that allows an organ or other bodily tissue to bulge through it. There are many types of hernias. Hernias may be barely noticeable or life-threatening, depending on their size and which organs are involved. In some cases, hernia surgery is performed to remove the annoying or unsightly bulge; in other cases, severe organ damage can occur if surgery is not performed immediately to repair the problem. A hernia can happen just about anywhere in the body. The most common areas are the abdomen and the groin. Most hernias can be repaired with minimally invasive techniques. The most common types of hernias include:

  • Inguinal – one of the two types of hernias in the groin
  • Femoral – the second of two types of hernias in the groin
  • Incisional – forms at the site of a surgical incision
  • Epigastric – abdominal hernia between the navel and the chest
  • Umbilical – forms near the navel, or bellybutton
  • Hiatal – allows the stomach to shift upward into the chest cavity
