Incisional Hernia Repair

Hernias are a protrusion of tissue through a weak spot in the abdominal cavity. They most often occur near the belly button in infants and some adults (umbilical hernia), along the inguinal canal in men (inguinal hernia), and at the site of a surgical scar (incisional hernia). In many instances, the hernia involves part of the intestine, but the lining of the abdominal cavity can also herniate.

When Procedure is Used

Incisional hernias most often occur along a surgical scar in the abdomen, and they can occur as a result of weight gain, pregnancy, or returning to physical activity too quickly after an abdominal operation. Incisional hernias must be repaired surgically.

During Surgery

You will most likely be given general anesthesia to make sure your body is relaxed and you are asleep during the procedure. Your surgeon will then make one incision in order to move the tissue, intestine, or other organs back to their proper place. In some instances, a small patch of mesh will be sewn to the tissue at the site of the hernia to stabilize the area until it has healed fully.


The risk of complications is very low. However, potential risks might include

  • allergic reactions to medications
  • nerve damage
  • bleeding or blood clots
  • infection
  • injury to surrounding tissues


  • prevention of further complications such as bowel obstruction as a result of the hernia
  • elimination of pain and discomfort
