Umbilical Hernia

Dr. Fiszer performs these procedures using the most advanced surgical technologies.

A hernia is a weak area of the abdominal wall that can potentially allow internal contents to protrude creating the typical bulging. There are different types of hernias depending on their location, origin, or complications.

Hernias can develop in multiple places of the abdominal wall and the most common ones include: the umbilicus or navel, the groin, and the upper abdomen. Some hernias can be present at birth, which are called congenital.  However, most develop over the years or at the site of a surgical scar.

Generally, the contents that protrude consist only of fat that we carry inside of the belly. There is a risk of internal organ involvement, such as the intestine. When that happens and it cannot be pushed back inside the defect, that segment of bowel can be compromised and potentially die if not addressed.

A surgical incision that involved the entire thickness of the abdominal wall can also become a hernia. This can occur when there is failure of the incision to completely close or heal. This is called an incisional hernia located at the site of the incision.

"I had the gastric sleeve with Dr. Fiszer a few weeks ago and it was the best experience I could have hoped for. He was caring and attentive to all my questions, offered information when there were things I didn't ask that I would need to know and the procedure itself was so so much better to recover from than I could have hoped for. I would (and will) highly recommend him to anyone and everyone that is looking for a surgeon. He also did an endoscopy on me a few months earlier and I had an equally good experience for that procedure. A+++ in my book!"

- Alejandra Martin, Patient

"Dr Fiszer and his staff are wonderful. He is a very knowledgeable, kind, caring, and concerned physician. He answered all of my questions and even answered questions I did not know I had. I was very hesitant about having any type of bariatric surgery. Dr. Fiszer helped me choose which procedure was best for me and when I decide on the gastric sleeve I felt well informed and comfortable with my decision. I would highly recommend him to anyone without reservation."

- Kristin Volz, Patient

"Dr. Fiszer is an amazing doctor. His bedside manner is impeccable and his desire to make you feel safe is one of the main reason I will always seek him out for any future surgery. His medical expertise is next to none. Dr. Fiszer performed emergency surgery on my husband for an abscess last weekend and his treatment, compassion, love for his work and respect for his patients is the highest I’ve ever seen. I loved his treatment, courtesy and overall desire to help. God bless you Doc! You ROCK!!!"
