Welcome to Hernia World

Hernia is a condition where an organ or a part of an organ protrudes through a normal or abnormal opening, causing pain and other serious problems. Common example is a swelling at the Umbilicus (navel or belly-button), which is nothing but fat or intestines bulging out of a hole at the naval. This can cause a swelling pain or even a life threatening condition, if the intestine gets stuck inside, and its blood supply gets hampered or obstructed. There are more than fifty different kinds of hernias described, but let us look at the common hernias and a few rarely occurring hernias.
