Ventral HerniaHernias that develop on your abdomen are referred to as ventral hernias. These hernias can emerge anywhere on the abdomen and require immediate attention by a qualified hernia surgeon.

At Texas Hernia & Surgical Specialists, Dr. Rick Ngo and our team will provide you with hernia repair options best suited for all types of hernias.

We work with you to provide advanced minimally invasive surgery procedures to resolve ventral hernias quickly and effectively.

Potential Symptoms

If there is a visible bulge somewhere in your front abdominal wall, chances are it could be a ventral hernia. It might occasionally emerge in the middle of certain activities or positions that result in contracted abdominal muscles.

You may see the ventral hernia when you are coughing, crying, laughing, pooping, bending, lifting, exercising, lifting, and more.

Sometimes, patients do not feel their hernia. It could feel like a tug, dull ache, or sharp pain.

There is a possibility of the hernia getting stuck or incarcerated while it is out, and it can bring nausea, vomiting, and redness at the site.

Causes of Ventral Hernia

There are multiple reasons that could be behind a ventral hernia. It could be because the weakness was already present at birth, or a single event, surgery, or injury led to the hernia.

In addition, gradual wear and tear over time can also cause hernia. Other contributing factors include:

  • Chronic obesity
  • Abdominal surgery
  • A weak spot at birth
  • Abdominal injury
  • Chronic coughing
  • COPD, emphysema, or chronic breathing difficulty
  • Natural muscle degeneration
  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Connective tissue diseases
  • Straining to poop or chronic constipation
  • Frequent lifting or pushing due to the nature of your job

Why Choose Us for Your Ventral Hernia Treatment?

The hernia repair procedures available from Texas Hernia & Surgical Specialists include minimally invasive surgery options. These herniorrhaphy solutions are designed to reduce the time needed for your hernia surgery recovery and to minimize collateral tissue damage caused by hernia repair procedures. Most of our patients experience less pain with minimally invasive hernia procedures than with traditional treatment options. Our surgeon, Dr. Ngo, has vast expertise in providing efficient care to his patients over the years.

How Minimally Invasive Procedures Work

Minimally invasive hernia surgery performed by Dr. Ngo and the Texas Hernia & Surgical Specialists team involve very small incisions and, in some cases, miniature cameras that provide a clear view of the problem and greater ease in resolving your hernia.

This reduces the recovery period for most of our patients by limiting the amount of tissue damage caused by the surgical process. Mesh is used to hold tissues in place and to reinforce the strength of the muscle wall.

Dr. Ngo will assess your situation and determine the best course of action for your medical needs.
