The More You Know

Why should I treat my hernia immediately?

If left untreated, your hernia may grow and become more painful. A portion of your intestine could become trapped in the abdominal wall. This can obstruct your bowel and cause severe pain, nausea, bloating or constipation.

An untreated hernia can also put too much pressure on nearby tissues. This can cause swelling and pain in the surrounding area. If the trapped section of your intestines doesn’t get enough blood flow, strangulation occurs.

This can cause the intestinal tissue to become infected or die. A strangulated hernia is life-threatening and requires immediate medical care.


Types Of Hernia

Hernias can occur in different areas of the body, and they are typically classified based on their location. Here are some common types of hernias:


Inguinal Hernia

This is the most common type of hernia and occurs in the groin area. It can be further classified into two subtypes.


Umbilical Hernia

This type of hernia appears around the navel or belly button and is often seen in infants and young children.


Incisional Hernia

These hernias develop at the site of a previous surgical incision, where the abdominal muscles may have weakened or separated.


Femoral Hernia

This type of hernia occurs just below the inguinal ligament in the upper thigh. It is more common in women and can lead to a painful bulge in the groin.


Lateral Ventral Hernia

These hernias occur at any location along the anterior abdominal wall, excluding the inguinal and femoral areas.


Hiatal Hernia

Hiatal hernias occur when a portion of the stomach protrudes through the diaphragm and into the chest cavity.


Epigastric Hernia

This type of hernia appears in the epigastric region, which is the upper abdomen between the breastbone and the navel.


Lumbar Hernia

These hernias occur in the lumbar region of the back and are relatively uncommon.

How We Work

Treatment Options for Gallstones

We understand that every patient is different and that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all treatment option. We therefore have a customised and personalised approach to treating acid reflux, and some of these treatments include:


We may prescribe medications to dissolve gallstones. Medications you take by mouth may help to dissolve gallstones but it may take months or years of treatment to dissolve your gallstones in this way, and gallstones will likely form again if treatment is stopped.

This is why sometimes medications don’t work and isn’t recommended. Medications for gallstones are not commonly used and are reserved for people who can’t undergo surgery.


You don’t need your gallbladder to live, and gallbladder removal doesn’t affect your ability to digest food. Your doctor may recommend surgery to remove your gallbladder, since gallstones frequently recur.

Once your gallbladder is removed, bile flows directly from your liver into your small intestine, rather than being stored in your gallbladder.

Techniques for Gallbladder Surgery Include:

  1. Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy – ‘keyhole’ surgery
  2. Open Surgery
