A hernia is where an internal part of the body pushes through a weakness in the muscle or surrounding tissue wall. Hernias occur in the abdomen and there are several different types, each determined by its location within the abdomen.

Hernia Surgery Simplified brings trainees and surgeons fully up to date with the latest techniques for hernia repair. The initial chapters discuss surgical anatomy of hernias, incidence and etiology, diagnosis and anaesthesia. The following sections are each dedicated to a different type of hernia and its surgical management.
