What is Postoperative Hernia?

Description of the disease

Postoperative hernia is a complication after surgery, in which a hernia forms at the site of the surgical intervention. This usually occurs due to improper wound healing or weakening of the tissues.


  • Postoperative hernia can be internal or external.
  • It can also occur immediately after the operation or appear after some time.


  • Pain at the site of the operation.
  • Protrusion or swelling in the area of the wound.
  • Difficulties with digestion.


Postoperative hernia can be caused by improper stitching, infection, excessive muscle tension, or impaired wound healing.


Various methods are used for diagnosis, such as ultrasound, computer tomography, or X-ray.


Treatment may include conservative methods, such as wearing a bandage, or surgical intervention to correct the hernia.


To prevent postoperative hernia, it is important to ensure proper recovery after surgery, avoid excessive muscle tension, and follow all doctor's recommendations.


Postoperative hernia treatment is carried out by a surgeon.
