Hernias are a common condition that can affect men, women, and children of all ages. While some hernias can be managed through lifestyle changes, the only way to permanently fix a hernia is surgical intervention. An ARC general surgeon can assess a hernia and guide you through the surgical treatment options that best fit your condition, symptoms, and lifestyle.
