Our New Jersey bariatric surgeon, Dr. Vadim Gritsus, will also perform laparoscopic surgery to resolve hernias effectively. At our practice, we offer minimally invasive surgical repair for both types of hernias — inguinal (groin) and ventral (abdominal).

At our state-of-the-art surgical center, our surgeon employs only the most advanced surgical procedures in hernia repair.

Millions of people face dealing with a hernia during a lifetime. As one of the top bariatric surgeons in NJ for hernia repair, you can be confident in our knowledge, skill, and use of modern surgical procedures for better results and faster recovery time.

Hernias are a common condition in which an organ is pushing through an opening between muscle or tissue that should be holding it in place. Weakness in muscles or connective tissue can lead to a hernia, typically the result of a disruption of the natural process of tissue repair, or increased pressure or strain.

Certain segments of the population are at higher risk of developing a hernia, including the following:

  • Males over 35
  • People who lift heavy objects
  • People who are overweight or obese
  • Those who suffer from a heavy or chronic cough
  • People with sports injuries
  • People who are dealing with chronic constipation
  • Smokers

Ventral Hernias

A “ventral hernia” is a bulge protruding through an opening or defect in the abdominal wall, and can occur at the belly button, or any area on the abdomen. In some cases, the hernia may occur at the site of a previous surgery where skin and muscle has been weakened or thinned -- termed an “incisional hernia.”

Some types of ventral hernias are a life-threatening surgical emergency, demanding immediate treatment. There are several surgical procedures that may be used, based upon the specific condition of the patient. At our practice, we carefully evaluate the hernia to determine the treatment plan that is appropriate, whether open repair or laparoscopic repair. You can be confident that our surgeon has the qualifications, experience, and surgical skills to help you move past the problems a hernia brings.

About Ventral Hernias

Hiatal Hernias

The diaphragm has a small opening called the hiatus through which the esophagus (food tube) passes to connect with the stomach. A hiatal hernia occurs when the stomach pushes upward through this opening in the diaphragm.

A large hiatal hernia can let food and acid back up into the esophagus, causing heartburn and acid reflux. In some cases, this condition can be treated with medications to relieve the symptoms. If the hernia is very large, however, surgery may be needed to repair it.

There are two main types of hiatal hernia. One type may be a cause for serious concern, even when no symptoms are present, because complications can arise in which the blood supply is cut off to the stomach.

About Hiatal Hernias

Inguinal Hernias

A hernia in the groin area is termed an “inguinal hernia.” These hernias occur most frequently on the right side of the groin, and are often debilitating.

Certain life-threatening complications can result from an inguinal hernia, and the condition should be treated as early as possible.

These hernias most often arise due to heavy strain, such as lifting a heavy object, separating muscle or tissue and allowing the hernia to pop through. The abdominal wall is made up of several layers, one of which is the “fascia,” a strong layer that functions to hold the abdomen together. The groin is an inherently weaker area of the fascia, which can rupture under stress. We use state-of-the-art laparoscopic surgery to repair a groin hernia safely, quickly, and effectively.
