The #1 risk factor for hernias is genetic predisposition. Can’t do anything about that. Most patients that have multiple hernias have a genetic alteration in the collagen in the hernia-prone tissues. They are just naturally weaker there.

Risk factors that can be controlled for so that you don’t have recurrences from your hernias and/or reduces the risk of another hernia:
– control any straining, such as from constipation or enlarged prostate
– maintain normal weight
– no nicotine
– exercise and maintain muscle strength
