      Can a hernia that has been repaired reoccurred or does having one cause a person to get other hernias?

      Can an Inguinal Hernia repair reoccurred?

      Hernias tend to be genetic. Thus, if you have one hernia, you may have or develop more hernias, but not in the same place. That would be considered a recurrence.

      All repairs of hernias have a rate at which they may reoccur. No one can claim a 0% recurrence rate. The recurrence rate varies based on technique and surgeon.
