Mesenteric Hernia


Mesenteric hernias (Internal Hernias) can be found in the abdomen at the base of the small intestine. These are more frequent if someone had previous intestinal surgery, such as the Gastric Bypass. Symptoms of such a hernia are pain and abdominal distension, which occurs intermittently lasting for up to hours, and may be associated with food intake. Such hernias can be repaired laparoscopically using tiny stab skin incisions, a camera and laparoscopic instruments.

Often these hernias are difficult to diagnose on using a radiographic study, and a laparoscopic exploration can diagnose and fix the hernia.

If you think you may have a hernia, feel free to ask Dr. Mehta about appropriate diagnosis and treatment options.
