Before Your Surgery: How to Prepare

Upper GI Enoscopy

Learn More About Upper GI Endoscopy


A person with a hernia often feels pain, pressure, or burning or feels like something has given way.

There are several types of hernias:

  • A femoral hernia appears as a bulge on the top of the thigh.
  • A hiatal hernia is a part of the stomach bulging up through the diaphragm (the wall of muscle that separates the abdominal cavity from the chest cavity).
  • An incisional hernia occurs after surgery to the wall of the abdomen.
  • An inguinal hernia occurs when a small portion of the bowel or other tissue bulges into the groin.
  • An umbilical hernia appears in the belly button. A periumbilical hernia is similar to an umbilical hernia, but it occurs next to the belly button.
  • A person with a hernia often feels pain, pressure, or burning or feels like something has given way.
