Hernia Surgery

At Glacial Ridge Health System, our surgeons specialize in laparoscopic (small incision) hernia surgeries, which are commonly performed in the inner groin, outer groin, belly button, or upper stomach. Their experience in minimally invasive procedures is nationally known and state-of-the-art.

What is a hernia?

Laparoscopic surgeries repair hernias that occur when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in surrounding muscle or connective tissue. This can be painful and can also cause a serious problem if a loop of intestine or tissue is trapped in a hernia—cutting off the blood supply and killing the tissue.
