Groin and abdominal hernia are very common illnesses.1 in 100 people have groin or abdominal wall hernia. However, unless the hernia grows or aches, doctors are not visited and it might even be unnoticed.
The most obvious hernia symptom is a protrusion that can be noticed with physical examination or seen as it grows. When abdominal muscles are not contracted and the patient lies on her/his back, the protruding organs and fat tissue can move back in the abdominal cavity and hernia might disappear momentarily. But in cases where protrusion width is small and/or hernia has grown too much, it might not disappear in above conditions.
Depending on the size of the hernia and the types of internal organs in the hernia sac, pain can accompany the protrusion. Abdominal hernia types are classified depending on the region they take place in – groin, umbilical, epigastric, incision, and flank hernia.
I was shocked when I first learned about my illness. After my diagnosis and some doctor appointments, I’ve found Dr Tarık to be the most trustworthy and transparent about the treatment. It was a very pleasing journey both physically and psychologically after the operation. I am glad to have chosen Dr Tarık and would recommend him to everyone without hesitation.
I trust him, he operated on my umbilical hernia. I am very healthy, thank you.
Dr Tarık is an angel who saved my mother from unbearable pain, doing what other surgeons couldn’t dare to do. You will always be very dear to us, I wish you good health and a long life to help patients like us, to touch their lives. You are very precious to us doctor, and I repeat and repeat, we are very glad to have you.
