Inguinal hernias result from a weakness in the abdominal muscles, creating spaces where intestines and other tissues can slip through and protrude, commonly resulting in a large bulge that may cause pain when lifting heavy objects coughing or bending over.
Unfortunately, an inguinal hernia will not improve on its own and may need surgery, especially if it becomes painful or progress to develop complications.
Inguinal Hernia Repairs fall within the General Surgical Specialty, despite its name, is the surgical specialty that focuses on surgical treatment of abdominal organs and often includes endocrine surgery, breast surgery and hernia surgery (Department of Health, 2010).
Inguinal Hernias are the most common surgical procedure completed in the General Surgery speciality. As such, the waiting list for surgery in public hospitals for Inguinal Hernia Repair Surgery can be up to 348 days.
