About Your Care and Condition

A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. This can cause a noticeable bulging and slight discomfort. Depending on the cause, a hernia can develop quickly or over a long period of time. 

We offer an Advanced Hernia Clinic for recurrent and complex abdominal hernias that require extensive surgical repair. Our multidisciplinary team includes dietitians, social workers and behavioral medicine specialists to provide you with resources to accomplish your pre-operative goals and support lifestyle changes. This may include smoking cessation, diabetes management and demonstrated weight loss.
