Specialized Care for Different Types of Hernias

Inguinal Hernia

Among the various types of hernias, inguinal hernias are the most commonly encountered. While they can affect both men and women, they are more frequently seen in males. Surprisingly, approximately 1 in 4 males will experience an inguinal hernia at some point in their lives. The natural weakness in the groin area, resulting from the descent of the testicle from the abdomen into the scrotum, predisposes males to inguinal hernias.

To minimize post-operative pain and reduce the risk of chronic pain, I utilize a tackless technique for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair.

Haital Hernia

Hiatal hernias typically develop later in life and present with a range of symptoms. These symptoms may include heartburn, nausea, vomiting, regurgitation, abdominal pain, chest pain, difficulty swallowing, bloating, belching, or coughing. The term 'hiatal' is derived from 'hiatus,' which refers to an opening, specifically the esophageal hiatus.

Umbilical Hernia

Umbilical hernias are among the most commonly encountered hernias. They occur naturally and can affect individuals of all age groups, from infants to the elderly. These hernias develop at the site of the navel, also known as the umbilicus, which acts as a natural weak spot in the abdominal wall due to the passage of the umbilical cord.

Umbilical hernias typically present as painless bulges at the navel, which may increase in size and become more painful over time. They tend to cause more symptoms during physical activity or prolonged standing, emphasizing the need for an experienced hernia surgeon for successful treatment.

General Surgery

"As a 59 year old male, I was obviously very nervous and concerned about having my recent open heart surgery for an aortic valve replacement. Fortunately Dr. Hanna and his team were OUTSTANDING and really made me comfortable throughout the surgical process. From pre-surgery consultation to post-surgery visits in the hospital, Dr. Hanna had such a kind and gentle "bed side" manner, and humbly speaks to you in a non-pretentious manner as if you were a friend or family member; a true gift for such a highly skilled surgeon. Dr. Hanna thoroughly explained the procedure, noting risks, types of valve replacement pros and cons, recovery time etc. He answered all of our (my partner went with me) questions and concerns and put me much more at ease just talking with him. He stopped by the prep room the morning of surgery as well as post surgery in the hospital. I was amazed at how small the incision in my chest actually was. I can't recommend Dr. Hanna highly enough - he is WONDERFUL! "
