SPIGELIAN HERNIA

 

A Spigelian hernia is a protrusion through a weakness between the muscle fibres of the abdominal wall. It usually happens on the lateral side of your tummy. The bulge may contain fat or intestine, but it is usually small and sometimes difficult to detect.

 

The repair can be performed using an open or keyhole technique and Mr Lorenzi will advise you which is the best type of repair

for you.
