What doctor should I see for a hernia?

A primary care or family care doctor can do the initial diagnosis of a hernia, which sometimes requires an X-ray or other diagnostic scans. A surgeon will be necessary to completely treat a hernia, though surgery is not always necessary for all types of hernias. Surgery is only necessary if pain or discomfort are significant or if there is an elevated risk for complications.
