Do I have to have surgery if I have a hernia?

Whether or not you need surgery if you have a hernia depends on your symptoms. Recent medical research indicates that patients who have either little or no discomfort from their hernias have such a low rate of complications that surgery is not immediately necessary. It’s best to see a hernia surgeon or hernia specialist to discuss the treatment options that are best for you. Almost all hernia specialists feel that there is no one size fits all approach to patients with hernia.
