Conditions and treatments


Midwest Hernia Center

Surgery is often the best solution for the discomfort of a hernia. Hernia surgeries are typically out-patient procedures, and patients can return to ordinary activities within a few days. There are two types of surgeries we most often perform:
  • Open mesh repair
  • Laparoscopic repair 

Conditions We Treat 
Hernias often show up as a bulge under the skin and pain is a typical symptom.
Common hernia conditions include:
  • Inguinal hernias
  • Ventral or incisional hernias
  • Umbilical hernias
  • Femoral hernias
  • Hiatal hernias
  • Sports hernias
