Gold Coast Hernia Surgeon

Hernia surgery

Hiatal hernia repair

Hiatal hernias occur when the upper part of the stomach protrudes through the diaphragm into the chest cavity, potentially leading to symptoms such as acid reflux, chest pain, and difficulty swallowing.

Inguinal hernia repair

Inguinal hernias are the most common type of hernia, characterised by a bulge or swelling in the groin area, often caused by a weakened abdominal wall.

Umbilical hernia repair

Umbilical hernias occur when a part of the abdominal organs pushes through a weak spot in or around the belly button area.

Femoral hernia repair

Femoral hernias occur when abdominal tissue pushes through the femoral canal near the groin. Surgical repair involves reinforcing the weakened area to prevent recurrence and restore the normal structure of the abdominal wall.

Ventral hernia repair

Ventral hernias develop when the abdominal tissue protrudes through a weakened area in the abdominal wall, often at a previous surgical site.

All hernias

Learn about all hernia types, including ventral hernia, femoral hernia, and umbilical hernia.
