Have you ever felt chest pains or abdominal ones or nausea? You might be suffering from a form of hernia. But, do not fear! The road to a pain-free life is easy and goes through a fairly easy surgical procedure.
In layman's terms, anytime a body part migrates to an area of the body it isn’t supposed to be, it’s called a hernia. A hiatal hernia occurs when the stomach bulges through the opening in the diaphragm called a hiatus.
Usually, the esophagus passes through the hiatus from the chest cavity into the abdominal one and connects to the stomach. There are two types of hiatal hernia:
In the sliding hiatal hernia, the stomach and the part of the esophagus that joins the stomach slide through the hiatal opening. This is the more common type of the two.
The paraesophageal hernia is less common and occurs when the esophagus and stomach remain in their place, but part of the stomach squeezes through the hiatal opening in the diaphragm. Although this type of hernia doesn’t necessarily present any symptoms, the stomach can become strangulated and its blood supply can be cut off.
Laparoscopic hiatal hernia surgery is a minimally invasive procedure. The procedure consists of making a series of small incisions through which the surgeon can see inside the patient’s body and insert instruments. Some of the advantages of laparoscopic surgery are:
