Hernia Treatments Directory

Hernia treatment will depend on the type of hernia you have: hiatal, umbilical, inguinal, incisional, or a different type. The most common hernia treatment is surgical repair (herniorrhaphy). Sometimes, if the doctor advises to wait on surgery, you may wear a truss that will hold the hernia in place and take pain relievers to help with discomfort. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how hernias are treated, what to expect from treatment, and much more.
