Hernia Specialist in Pune & Pimpri Chinchwad

When an internal organ or other body component protrudes through the muscle or tissue wall that typically surrounds it, it is called a hernia. The majority of hernias develop between the chest and the hips, in the abdominal cavity. Although most hernias aren't life-threatening, they don't go away on their own. They may require surgery to avoid serious complications. Dr. Shrikant Kurhade is one of the best Hernia Specialist in Pune, provides complete Hernia Treatment in Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad.


A hernia occurs when the peritoneum, the muscular membrane that normally keeps abdominal organs in place, weakens or tears. The peritoneum defect allows organs and tissues to press through, or herniate, resulting in a bulge. When the individual lies down, the lump may disappear, but it might also be pushed back into place. It may reappear if you cough.

Types of Hernia

Inguinal hernia

The spermatic cord and blood arteries going to the testicles pass via the inguinal canal in males. The circular ligament that supports the womb is seen in the inguinal canal in women. In an inguinal hernia, fatty tissue or a section of the intestine protrudes from the top of the inner thigh into the groin. This is the most common form of hernia, and males are more likely than women to have it.

Umbilical hernia

Near the navel, fatty tissue or a part of the intestine pushes through the abdomen (belly button).

Hiatal (hiatus) hernia

Through a hole in the diaphragm, a part of the stomach rises into the chest cavity (the horizontal sheet of muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen).

Femoral hernia

At the top of the inner thigh, fatty tissue or a portion of the intestine protrudes into the groin. Femoral hernias are far less prevalent than inguinal hernias, and they mostly afflict women in their later years.

Hernias can also be divided into the following categories:

Epigastric hernia

Between the navel and the lower section of the sternum, fatty tissue protrudes through the abdominal region (breastbone).

Incisional hernia

Tissue from a distant abdominal or pelvic procedure protrudes through an abdominal scar.

Diaphragmatic hernia

Organs in the abdomen pass through a diaphragm opening into the chest.

Spigelian hernia

The intestine pushes through the abdomen below the navel, on the side of the abdominal muscle.

What causes a hernia?


Inguinal and femoral hernias are caused by weakened muscles that might be present from birth or develop as a result of age and frequent stresses on the abdomen and groin regions. Physical exercise, weight, pregnancy, regular coughing, or straining on the toilet due to constipation can all cause strain.

Adults can develop an umbilical hernia by straining their abdominal muscles, being overweight, coughing for a long time, or giving birth. Hiatal hernias are not completely understood, however, they may be caused by a weakening of the diaphragm with age or strain on the abdomen.

What are the symptoms of a hernia?

A hernia in the belly or groin can cause a lump or bulge in the abdomen or groin that can be pushed back in or disappear when lying down. After the lump has been pushed in, laughing, sobbing, coughing, straining during a bowel movement, or physical activity may cause it to reappear. Other signs and symptoms of a hernia include:

  1. Increased pain at the site of the bulge.
  2. Pain while lifting.
  3. A dull aching sensation.
  4. Increase in the bulge size over time.
  5. A sense of feeling full or signs of bowel obstruction.
  6. Swelling or bulge in the groin or scrotum

How is a hernia diagnosed?

A bulge in the area where a hernia has developed may generally be seen or felt during a physical examination. Your hernia specialist in Pune feels the area around the testicles and groin while the patient coughs as part of a normal physical exam for inguinal hernias in men. Soft-tissue imaging, such as a CT scan, can sometimes effectively detect the illness.

Hernia Treatment In Pune

Hernias rarely heal on their own, and surgery may be the only option. Your doctor will propose the best treatment for your hernia and may recommend visiting a hernia specialist in Pune. If your laparoscopic hernia surgeon in Pune believes that repairing your hernia is required, he will choose the form of surgery that best suits your needs.

Hernia surgery can be performed in one of three ways:

  1. Open surgery – During this procedure, an incision is made into the body at the hernia’s site. The projecting tissue is sewn back together, and the weakening muscular wall is reinserted. To give extra support, a type of mesh is sometimes placed in the region.
  2. Laparoscopic surgery – This involves the same kind of repairs Instead of a cut to the exterior of the abdomen or groin, microscopic incisions are created to allow surgical tools to be inserted and the surgery to be completed.
  3. Robotic hernia repair – It’s similar to laparoscopic surgery in that it’s done with a laparoscope and tiny incisions. Your hernia specialist in Pune will perform robotic surgery while seated at a console in the operating room, where he or she controls the surgical tools. Robotic surgery can now be used to repair the abdominal wall, as well as for some minor hernias or weak areas.
