It is estimated that 5 million Americans have hernias and only 700,000 have them surgically repaired each year. Hernias do not resolve on their own and actually tend to get larger with time. They can also lead to potential complications such as incarceration or strangulation (where bowel gets trapped inside a hernia).
Digestive Diseases represent a broad group of diseases affecting the organs involved in digestion and excretion of food. Surgical Specialists perform elective and emergency surgery on the organs of the digestive tract, from the starting point at the esophagus, through the stomach, liver, pancreas, spleen, small bowel and colon, all the way down to the rectum and anus.
