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.
