Recurrent Hernia

Recurrent Hernia

USC Surgery / Conditions / Recurrent Hernia

Sometimes hernias can return after operation. This can be due to obesity, smoking, excessive activity following hernia surgery, chronic cough or a mesh that is too small or improperly attached during surgery. Laparoscopic repair can allow a larger mesh to be attached to avoid having the hernia return.
