The surgical care team at Ascension Saint Agnes specializes in hernia procedures. Most hernias occur in the groin, abdomen, thigh, or genitals:

  • Incisional hernia occurs at the site of a previous surgical incision
  • Umbilical hernia occurs at the navel
  • Indirect inguinal hernia occurs in the groin at the internal ring
  • Direct inguinal hernia occurs in the groin near the internal ring
  • Femoral hernia occurs just below the groin
  • Epigastric hernia occurs in the upper abdomen at the midline

If you are experiencing symptoms including acid reflux, pain or swelling in the belly wall, see your doctor. At Ascension Saint Agnes, we provide convenient outpatient testing and medical imaging, including ultrasound testing to help detect a hernia.
