A complex hernia can result from a previous hernia or hernias, infection and other complications. Your treatment approach will depend on your condition and may involve outpatient surgery to repair the damage.


We will recommend one of two procedures: open repair surgery, in which we make an incision for access to your hernia, or minimally invasive laparoscopy surgery. Hernia surgeries take about one hour to perform and generally do not require an overnight stay in the hospital. In both procedures, our team will use stitches or mesh to reinforce the abdomen wall.
