A hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue called fascia. The most common types of hernia are inguinal (inner groin), incisional (resulting from an incision), femoral (outer groin), umbilical (belly button), and hiatal (upper stomach). Dr. Sharfi Sarker, MD, with Centegra Health System, discusses the common occurrences of hernias, the symptoms and the ways to treat them.
