Hernias affect many Americans. Although the exact cause of hernias is unknown, researchers have found that weak spots in the abdominal and groin muscles are contributing factors. Hernias can cause severe discomfort, and place physical limitations on those who develop them. Hernia surgery is the only way to effectively treat this condition and restore a patient’s comfort, activity level, and quality of life.

For those who are looking to treat hernias quickly and effectively, laparoscopic surgery may be the most appropriate treatment option.
