Transcript

Hernias are quite common but are definitely more common in men than in women. In men, about 20-25% of men will develop a hernia during their lifetime. For women, it's about 9-10%. Specifically we're talking about groin hernias or inguinal hernias, as those are the most common types that we treat. Nationwide, as a country we perform somewhere around 800,000-900,000 hernia repairs a year.
