Groin Hernia

Freedom From Obesity offers Groin Hernia Surgery for patients requiring this treatment. Surgery is necessary when the lower half of the body which keeps the abdominal contents in place becomes weakened. This weakened state can result in complications such as the formation of a hole in the musculature. When this takes place, an abdominal organ such as the intestines may push through the muscle resulting in what is called an Inguinal Hernia. This condition can cause a bulge or a lump and often causes pain, burning, or swelling at the affected site.

Severe Cases

In severe instances of groin hernia, the hernia becomes what is termed as “strangulated” resulting in an emergency situation. Accompanying symptoms include nausea, severe fever and pain, as well as vomiting. Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia repair is the necessary procedure to address groin hernia in its various stages including moderate, to advanced.


*Disclaimer: All weight loss claims are due to surgery. Results will vary by person and are based upon the patient, the surgery type and the compliance with the aftercare program.
