Intestinal Wall Surgery

This surgery is a procedure that is performed to strengthen the muscles and tissues of the abdominal wall, which have been damaged by herniation.

The operation of an abdominal hernia is used to correct body segment protrudes through an opening or weak area of the abdominal muscles.

Often the use of meshes is needed to help to strengthen the hernia area in order to prevent recurrences. These meshes are usually made of monofilament of polypropylene, which is integrated in the intestinal walls of the patient, so that human tissue cells are integrated between the fibers to form a strong tissue. There are other materials that are also used in our services.
The most common procedures in this type of surgery are:

  • Inguinal hernia
  • Femoral hernia
  • Incisional ventral hernia
  • Abdominoplasty
