don't delay hernia treatment 

​A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. 

Many hernias occur in the abdomen or groin area.

common symptoms:

  • pain when bending, lifting or coughing
  • a bulge in the abdomen or groin at the site of pain
  • burning, aching sensation around the bulging area

When do you need treatment for a hernia?

Most hernias aren’t immediately life-threatening, but they don’t go away on their own. Many hernias get larger over time and may lead to more serious complications if not repaired. It is generally recommended that you consider repairing a hernia to prevent these complications and to resolve pain associated with the hernia. 


Surgery offers relief 

Once a hernia forms, it does not go away on its own. Some hernias can be repaired by minimally-invasive surgery and patients often find relief relatively quickly with reduced recovery time and side effects.
Don’t delay seeking treatment if you’re suffering. Speak to your primary care provider or call 603.627.1887 to schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons.

following an initial consultation, we can often schedule your procedure within one week.
