What is a hernia?
A hernia is a protrusion of a tissue, structure, or part of an organ through the structures by which it is normally contained.
Most people think of a hernia as being specific to the abdominal wall and groins but hernias can occur in other parts of the body. For instance, a slipped disc is a type of hernia where the inner part of the disc protrudes out of the outer part of the disc to press on the spinal cord.
This website aims to give information regarding the different types of abdominal hernia, the complications and the treatments.
