Hernia Surgery Procedure

Dr. Anthony Gonzalez, Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery at South Miami Hospital, explains you have to get surgery immediately when the hernia is strangulated. “If somebody is strangulated in the emergency room and cannot be reduced and pushed back in, you go straight to the operating room.”

He says you also need surgery if the strangulation is pushed back in.
