Ventral hernia repair

Ventral hernia repair is surgery to repair a ventral hernia. A ventral hernia is a sac (pouch) formed from the inner lining of your belly (abdomen) that pushes through a hole in the abdominal wall.

Ventral hernias often occur at the site of an old surgical cut (incision). This type of ventral hernia is also called incisional hernia.
