Listen to Dr Deepak Subramanian, Senior Consultant and Clinical Lead, Department of Minimal Access (GI) and Bariatric Surgery at MGM Healthcare, talk about the different types of hernias and the treatment options.
The doctor shares that it is important to understand what happens if someone leaves a hernia unattended. He shares that patients have often claimed that there is no pain so they don’t see the need for surgery. Dr Deepak explains that when one has a protrusion of the intestines and if it stays in the hernial sac outside the body, it can lose its blood supply over a period of 4-6 hours which can cause serious problems that are life threatening.
MGM Healthcare is always prepared for any emergencies. However, it’s best to have hernias treated with planned surgeries which are minimally invasive, through laparoscopic methods.
