Hiatus Hernia Surgery

What is Hiatal Hernia ?

The Hiatus is a small opening that separates the chest cavity from the abdomen. Whenever the stomach bulges up to the chest through this opening, it is called hiatal hernia. 

Laparoscopic hernia repair is the repair of a hiatal hernia using a laparoscope, which is a tiny telescope-like instrument. A hiatal hernia is the protrusion of an organ through its wall or cavity. There are several different methods that can be used when performing this procedure. 

What Causes Hiatal Hernia?

Though most of the time, the reason for hiatal hernia is not known, increased pressure in the abdomen due to pregnancy, obesity, coughing, or straining during bowel movements may have an effect causing this type of hernia. Some people may be born with larger hiatus opening increasing the risk of Hiatal hernias.
