Incarcerated Femoral Hernia Treatment
Femoral hernias are usually treated with surgery. The surgeon places the intestine back into the abdomen and repairs the weakened area in the abdominal wall.
Surgical procedures for femoral hernia include:
- Laparoscopic femoral hernia repair
- The surgeon uses a fiberoptic scope to repair the hernia through small incisions in the abdominal wall.
- Open femoral hernia repair:
- The surgeon makes a larger incision in the abdomen and repairs the hernia without a fiberoptic scope.
