Treating Severe Hernias

Giant Hernias

Have you noticed your hernia increasing in size? Or did you recently have surgery to repair your hernia and it wasn't successful? Both of these scenarios can lead to giant hernias and can not only increase the level of pain but also leave you feeling hopeless. With experience treating hernias of all shapes, sizes, and types, we are committed to helping you find a solution towards recovery.

Abdominal wall reconstruction

If you continue to face ongoing hernias, your abdominal wall can be severely weakened by the ongoing trauma. As a result, we can perform a surgery to reconstruction your abdominal wall and reinforce your muscles, organs, and health. This reconstructive surgery is completed by repositioning the muscles in your abdomen and securing your inner intestines with a mesh. 

Having a hernia isn’t hopeless. No matter how severe your condition is, we can find a hernia repair solution that is right for your body.
