If you are experiencing bulges and pain in the lower pelvis, you may have a groin hernia that requires treatment. In many cases, these issues are caused by an inguinal hernia. Both men and women can suffer from this condition; however, men are ten times more likely to develop inguinal hernias.

Inguinal hernias can develop on either side of the groin. At his Beverly Hills offices, Danny Shouhed, MD can perform a mesh repair procedure to correct inguinal hernias. If you have an indirect inguinal hernia, the condition is related to congenital defects. This results in the hernia sac protruding into the inguinal canal. A direct inguinal hernia is different, in that a weakened area close to the inguinal canal coupled with pressure is the primary cause.

Inguinal Hernia Surgery

As a board-certified gastrointestinal specialist, Dr. Danny Shouhed is well versed in the treatment of inguinal hernias. Using the most conservative treatment options, Dr. Shouhed opts for mesh repair procedures. These are achieved by making a minimal incision in the groin, pushing the hernia into its natural position and repairing the opening with mesh.

Dr. Shouhed is proficient in the use of laparoscopic and robotic tools. These options are available for the repair of inguinal hernias, depending on the individual needs of each patient. Minimally-invasive surgery is safer, causes less tissue trauma and results in shorter recovery periods for most patients. While there are risks with any surgery, the precision of robotic guided procedures significantly reduces the chances of patients experiencing complications.

Inguinal Hernia Consultation

Do not ignore bulges accompanied by pain in the groin. An inguinal hernia is the likely cause, but consultation with a gastrointestinal specialist is always recommended. Dr. Shouhed and his Beverly Hills team are welcoming, knowledgeable and can answer any questions you may have about inguinal hernia surgery with mesh.

A consultation with Dr. Shouhed is a great opportunity to learn more about robotic surgery techniques. Not all gastrointestinal specialists have the skills or training to use this technology. You will benefit from laser focused precision and better recovery outcomes.
