A hernia is a hernia, right?
Not exactly. Hernia is a general term for some organ pushing through an opening in the muscle wall around it. But which organ and which muscle wall? Hiatal hernias are the upper portion of the stomach pushing up through the diaphragm. This is one cause of gastric reflux. On the other hand, when the organ is the intestine and the muscle wall is somewhere in the abdomen or groin, this is a different hernia altogether. Both of these common hernias will be discussed by UH Samaritan surgeons Dr. Megan Sippey (Hiatal Hernias and Reflux), and Dr. Vineeta Gahlawat (Abdominal, Umbilical, and Inguinal Hernias).
