Hernias are very common. For some, it can cause sudden pain when you cough or move. For others, it develops over time and may not cause any pain at all. But for the nearly five million Americans who suffer from one each year, a hernia can lead to other health problems if left untreated.
Physicians at Mercy Health System’s four hospitals offer surgery and treatment to help individual suffering from hernias.
