Paras Hospital Darbhanga is the First Multi Super Speciality Hospital of Mithilanchal region and has launched specialised care and treatment facility for Hernia. A hernia is a medical condition that occurs when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue. It leads to a formation of a bulge, swelling or lump like formation. The same can cause pain, bloating and discomfort. Paras Hospital Darbhanga has a team of specialised General and Laparoscopic Surgeons that specialise in providing minimally invasive – scar less – laparoscopic surgery for all types of hernia.
According to Dr Shamim Khurrum Azmi, Consultant General and Laparoscopic Surgery, Paras Hospital Darbhanga, “Hernia is a condition that can exist since birth, can be due to a medical conditions with raised intra abdominal pressure can be caused due to lifting heavy weight and on doing strenuous labour or it can occur after some surgery(incisional hernia). In Darbhanga we have seen a number of cases caused due to all the above mentioned reasons.”
He highlights, “At Paras Hospital Darbhanga, we have specialised technology and equipment to treat and manage all types of hernias – Inguinal hernias, femoralhernias, umbilical hernias, incisional hernias, epigastric hernias, spigelian hernias, and diaphragmatic hernias.”
“Early diagnosis and timely treatment is the key in Hernia. Please note that if you are experiencing any of the following, it is best that you consult a doctor at the earliest. The doctor can ask you to go through some ultrasounds and blood tests. Please don’t ignore your symptoms, opt for the tests and follow up with the doctor.
– Abnormal bulge or swelling in the abdomen or groin.
– Sudden and severe pain in some area of the body, especially between the chest and the stomach.
– Vomiting and nausea, failure to reduce pre-existing hernia swelling.
– Difficulty in passing stool and the presence of gas in the stomach.
These discomforts could be due to the fact that a certain area can get blocked due to the protrusion of the hernia and a section can get isolated, getting no blood flow(Stragulated hernia). These are the reasons which justify the requirement of early diagnosis and timely treatment”
According to Dr. Azmi, Consultant General and Laparoscopic Surgery, Paras Hospital Darbhanga, “To diagnose a hernia and ascertain the type of the same, a specialist can ask the patient to mainly go through clinical examinations and ultrasound. The test provides where the bulge is and to what extent the issue persists.”
