In spite of modern techniques and expertise, all hernia repairs, unfortunately, have a recurrence rate. For groin or inguinal hernias and small umbilical or ventral hernias this rate is very low on the order of 1-2%. CTHC surgeons tailor an appropriate approach that is optimized for a durable repair.
Repairing hernias that have recurred requires an advanced skillset that CT Hernia surgeons possess. Prior operations often mean more scarring and adhesions especially where much has been previously employed due to the inherent complexity of recurrent hernia repair. The CT Hernia Center has become a regular referral resource for these types of cases. Your surgeon will guide you through each phase of care and offer the reassurance that comes with experience and expertise.
