Lateral Hernia Repair Procedures

Patients undergoing orthopedic or spinal surgery, especially through an abdominal approach, have an increased risk of nerve injury and herniation to the abdominal wall musculature. When this occurs, it is called a lateral hernia.

Typically with a lateral hernia, a patient experiences increased abdominal size and girth. Sometimes one side of the abdomen gets stretched out and bulges, and the belly button is no longer in the midline.

Repair of this type of hernia involves complete strengthening of the abdominal wall. The functional musculature is connected together with a soft mesh that returns core strength and reverses the stretching of the abdominal wall.
