Our SURGICAL PROCEDURES

Unlike traditional repairs, the abdominal fascia (tissue around the muscle that gives strength to the abdominal wall) isn’t sutured together. Instead, the mesh covers the weak area like a patch.

A hernia occurs when a section of intestine protrudes through a weakness in the abdominal muscles. A soft bulge is seen underneath the skin where the hernia has occurred.

TAPP is one way to do a hernia repair. It stands for “transabdominal preperitoneal.” The peritoneum is a membrane that covers the organs in the abdomen. During TAPP, the peritoneum is opened to reach the hernia.

Although a hernia bulge may appear suddenly, hernias often take years to develop. They grow larger as pressure inside the body presses the intestines or other tissues out through a weak area in the abdominal wall.
