Ventral Hernia, Incisional Hernia

Ventral herniaA hernia that appears at the site of a previous surgery is known as an incisional hernia. These hernias can appear weeks, months, or even years after surgery and can vary in size from small to very large and complex. These type of hernias can be repaired without mesh using a multiple layered suture technique or with mesh. If you think you have a ventral hernia, it’s important to see your doctor because it may widen and become extremely difficult to repair.
