The surgeons at the UK Hernia Program are leaders in
minimally invasive surgery and hernia repair. Our doctors specialize in all types of abdominal-wall hernias, from the simple to the most complex cases. Our surgeons focus on providing patients with the best hernia care for their condition.
A hernia is a protrusion (bulge) of an organ (generally the intestines) through a defect (hole) in the cavity in which it normally resides. Simply stated, a hernia is a hole in the wall of the abdomen. This results in the intestines or bowel pushing through the hole. Hernias can occur at many locations on the abdominal wall. Most hernias can be detected by a physician during a physical examination, though some hernias are not detectable without additional imaging such as an ultrasound or CT scan.
