When It Comes to Hernia Repair, Choose the Best Surgeon to Avoid Recurrence

If you’ve been told you have a hernia, you’re not alone. Each year, nearly 1.25 million hernia surgeries are performed, making it one of the most common surgeries in the United States.  

Hernias aren’t usually immediately life-threatening conditions, but they do cause discomfort and other challenging symptoms. They also don’t go away on their own, requiring medical intervention to avoid complications and additional issues in the future. 

At MIB Surgery in Plantation, Florida, board-certified surgeon Abel Bello, MD, and our care team help people struggling with the uncomfortable effects of hernia with our expert hernia care. While all surgeries come with risks, choosing the right surgical team can minimize your chances of hernia recurrence.

Take a moment to learn what you need to know about hernia repair and how to select the best surgeon for your condition. 

What is a hernia?

When the connective tissue or muscles weaken or develop a tear, your internal organs can push through, creating a hernia. 

You can develop hernias in different areas of the body, but most of the time when people talk about hernias they’re referring to inguinal hernias — when a small portion of your bowel pushes through the muscles of your groin.

Other types of hernias include:

You can also develop an incisional hernia, which occurs along the line of a healed surgical incision. The team at MIB Surgery has experience and skill in surgically repairing each of these types of hernias. 

How important is the right surgeon for hernia repair?

Your surgeon is critical to the success of your hernia repair, and who repairs your hernia can mean the difference between a full recovery and recurrent hernia. In fact, inadequate surgical repair is one of the leading causes of recurrence. 

To avoid a repeat hernia, be sure to research your provider and don’t be afraid to ask questions, including:

The team of specialists at MIB Surgery specializes in minimally invasive hernia repair. We use small incisions, which cause less physical trauma to your body and help you recover faster and with less pain. 

Our team evaluates your unique condition to determine whether manual laparoscopy or robot-assisted laparoscopy using the da Vinci system is best for you. Regardless of the surgical technique, your MIB Surgery surgeon remains in control of the surgical instruments and conducts the repair.
