Is Hernia Surgery Outpatient?
There are many types of hernias, including hiatal hernia, incisional hernia, inguinal (groin) hernia, femoral hernia and others. In order to know what treatment option is best for you, it’s important to first see a hernia surgeon for a consultation.
It’s important to note that hernias cannot be repaired without surgical intervention. Diet and lifestyle changes may be sufficient for managing symptoms in some cases. However, many hernia symptoms will not go away without treatment. Rather, symptoms often become worse and may even become life-threatening.
Hernia surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis and patients return to normal activity relatively quickly. Major advances in recent years have revolutionized hernia repair, leading to smoother and faster recovery, minimizing recurrence, reducing post- repair pain and making treatment possible for hernias previously considered not repairable.
Acid Reflux & Heartburn Treatments
While there are medications and lifestyle changes that can help control GERD, many people find that these are not enough to give them the quality of life they desire. Additionally, some GERD medications cause unpleasant side effects like fatigue, depression, anxiety, belly cramps, constipation, diarrhea, and jitteriness. These are just a few of the reasons why so many patients at Jordan Valley Medical Center – West Valley Campus have decided to undergo heartburn surgery.
Because living with chronic heartburn can result in serious adverse consequences, it’s important to have your symptoms evaluated. Patients throughout West Valley City have done this by scheduling a consultation with a surgeon (which does not mean that surgery will be your only treatment option).
