What is a hernia?
Hernias are very common and can occur in many areas of the body. Our bodies are held together by bone, muscle, and a band-like material called fascia. Fascia gives our body its shape, similar to a girdle that is worn around the waist. When fascia tears, our insides are no longer held in place. Our internal organs bulge through these holes. This resulting bulge is a hernia. When hernias occur in the groin, they cause a groin bulge or groin pain. This is commonly called an inguinal hernia. When a hernia occurs at the belly button, it is called an umbilical hernia. Hernias can form almost anywhere on the belly, and these are known as abdominal hernias. When we have surgery, the surgeon must cut through our fascia to get to our internal organs. If the fascia does not close or heal well, then the tear remains, resulting in incisional hernias.
Hernia Surgery Cost
At The Hernia Center of Southern California we do not publish our costs. Our cost for hernia surgery is competetive with other hernia centers. At other hernia centers you will see a cheap published price only to find disappointment at the time you see the doctor when you are told that the cost of your hernia surgery is higher than the published price because of problems that are you unique to you. Here are some of the hidden costs. They will tell you that you will have to pay an additional fee because your hernia is too big, you are too big, you have other medical problems, or that you hernia surgery is expected to be more difficult. Avoid this disappointment and call our office for an accurate cost to repair your hernia.
