    hernia specialist in New Hampshire

    1. Try Dr Gina Adrales at Dartmouth. She is a talented surgeon with interest in women with hernias.
    2. MRI is recommended if Ultrasound is not diagnostic. If trappings shows hernia, no need to do further imaging. In fact, my research paper “role of imaging in the diagnosis of occult hernias” published on JAMA Surgery this week. Show this to any entity or person who refuses to order MRI to help you.
    3. Abdominal core exercises may improve your muscle strength around the area of you hernia and improve
    Hernia symptoms.
    4. Yes! Your prior laparoscopic operations do not prevent you from having laparoscopic hernia repair.

    Talk to your surgeon. For thin petite women, I do not recommend mesh repair unless it’s done laparoscopically and with lightweight mesh. Other option is non-mesh open repair.
