Baylor Scott & White Center for Hernia Surgery Waxahachie

A specialized center in Waxahachie for hernia repair

Experienced surgeons specializing in hernia repairs and management of hernia complications ensure that you are receiving the best hernia repair possible. Their ability to handle the more complex, large and recurrent hernias with newer techniques and using the best tools and material lead to lower recurrences and less complications.

What is a hernia?

A hernia is a defect in the abdominal wall that allows organs to protrude. If left unrepaired, hernias can grow larger over time, causing discomfort and pain.

What are the goals of a good hernia repair?

  • Safe, low complication rate
  • Low recurrence
  • Minimally invasive (less wound complications, faster recovery)
  • Keep mesh outside the abdominal cavity to minimize mesh complications
  • Re-establish normal anatomy and correct diastasis recti

These require special attention and preparation due to increased risk of wound complications and recurrences.

Diastasis recti
A bulge in the abdomen without the presence of a true hernia defect. It is caused by stretching and thinning as well as separation of the rectus muscles. It is most commonly seen in women after pregnancy but can be seen in men as well. It may affect the function of your abdominal wall.

Hernias in women
Special consideration is given to women of child-bearing age with hernias. We attempt to repair diastase recti in ventral hernias. We always attempt minimally invasive repair in groin hernias in women.
