coming to your area Hernia Facts:
  • More than five million Americans have hernias. Many hernia surgeries are performed on an out-patient basis and the majority of hernia patients return to normal activities within 3-7 days. Hernia surgery can be performed through one small 4-6cm incision. The longer you wait to have a hernia repaired, the larger it gets and in some cases, it can be life-threatening.
If you, or someone you know, suspects having a hernia but hasn’t had it examined by a physician, we encourage you not to wait. And what better way to have it checked than at a FREE hernia screening! Check the current locations to see if there’s a screening scheduled in your local area. If not, please contact your physician or a surgeon listed in our Physician Referral Center to have your hernia repaired. Don’t wait, check today for a free local hernia screening near you!

Hernia Overview
A hernia occurs when the contents of a body cavity bulge out of the area where they are normally contained. These contents, usually portions of intestine or abdominal fatty tissue, are often enclosed in the thin membrane that naturally lines the inside of the cavity. Although the term hernia can be used for bulges in other areas, it most often is used to describe hernias of the lower torso (abdominal wall hernias). Hernias by themselves usually are harmless, but nearly all have a potential risk of having their blood supply cut off (becoming strangulated). If the hernia sac contents have their blood supply cut off at the hernia opening in the abdominal wall, it becomes a medical and surgical emergency. Different types of abdominal wall hernias include the following:
  • Inguinal hernia: Making up 75% of all abdominal wall hernias and occurring up to 25 times more often in men than women, these hernias are divided into 2 different types, direct and indirect. Both occur in the area of where the skin crease at the top of the thigh joins the torso (the inguinal crease), but they have slightly different origins. Both of these types of hernias can similarly appear as a bulge in the inguinal crease. Distinguishing between the direct and indirect hernia, however, is not that important because both are treated the same.
      Indirect inguinal hernia: An indirect hernia follows the pathway that the testicles made during prebirth development. It descends from the abdomen into the scrotum. This pathway normally closes before birth but remains a possible place for a hernia. Sometimes the hernial sac may protrude into the scrotum. An indirect inguinal hernia may occur at any age but becomes more common as people age.

NAHI Philosophy:
The Institute's purpose is to provide excellence in patient hernia repair at a minimal expense to the insurance carrier and the patient. This philosophy evolved through 28 years of experience and success utilizing specialized polypropylene mesh. Our friendly rapport with our patients and with insurance companies has allowed us to grow to become a center of excellence in hernia repair.
From one center, we have expanded to multiple locations throughout California. We have enlarged our staff by selecting Board Certified Surgeons with interest in the advance of hernia repair techniques. Working with local outpatient centers and hospitals, these surgeons were trained, observed by N.A.H.I. staff, and then qualified to join the Institute. Our present hernia repair has evolved over many years into a straight forward outpatient mesh reinforced herniorrhaphy.
Both general and local anesthesia can be used depending on the patient's health and preference. The patient may return to modified activity within 7 to 10 days and to normal and customary activity within 14 to 24 days. The insurance company quoted recurrence rate of 10% to 12% stimulated our efforts in combining the Shouldice technique with polypropylene mesh, thereby reducing our recurrence rate to less than 1/2%. We have also consolidated all costs of a hernia repair into one bill issued with a Lifetime Warranty for primary repairs.

HIATUS ( hiatal ) hernia. Unlike an abdominal (or groin) hernia, a hiatus hernia occurs in the chest area and affects the digestive system.
(Click here to SKIP Hiatus Hernia)

Unlike an abdominal (or groin) hernia, a hiatus hernia occurs in the chest area and affects the digestive system. Where the oesophagus ('food pipe', or 'gullet') goes down, it passes the diaphragm through a gap called the hiatus. Immediately below that, it goes into the stomach which sits just below the diaphragm. This hiatus causes a narrowing of the opening into the stomach and this helps prevent stomach contents from going the wrong way, ie upwards, which is called reflux. If the area of the hiatus is weak, the function of 'clamping down' on the entry to the stomach is weakened, the result being the reflux of acidic digestive juices up into the oesophagus, which is not protected against the action of these acids. The outcome of this is often a quite painful burning sensation. Other symptoms patients suffer include chest pain which may extend to just below the shoulder blades. Unlike an abdominal hernia, there are no tell-tale visible symptoms of hiatus hernia, as the whole event occurs inside the chest. The diagnosis is established by a specialist; the combination of symptoms must be confirmed by X-ray and an endoscopy (a view using a lighted tube).

  • What is a hernia? What does a hernia feel like? Why does a hernia hurt? Who gets hernias? ... What if I have other questions?
  • 1. What is a hernia? A hernia is a protrusion of an organ or tissue through an abnormal opening in the body. Most hernias occur when a piece of intestine slips through a weakness in the abdominal wall, creating a bulge you can see and feel. Hernias can develop around the naval, in the groin, or any place where you may have had a surgical incision. Some hernias are present at birth. Others develop slowly over a period of months or years. Hernias also can come on quite suddenly. Think of it this way… Think of your hernia as a bulge in a tire. The outer wall of the tire is like your abdominal wall. The inner tube of the tire is like your intestines (Figure 1). Most of the time the outer wall of the tire is strong enough to hold the inner tube, but if the wall weakens, a bulge may occur (Figure 2). Just like a hernia may form in a weakness in the abdominal wall (Figure 3).
