Femoral Hernia Repair

Femoral hernia repair surgery is for a hernia near the upper thigh or groin. A femoral hernia is tissue that extends out of a weakened area of the groin. The tissue is pushed back and the weakened area is surgically closed. Femoral hernias need to be repaired since the intestine can get enclosed in the hernia. This could cause blood supply to the intestine to be cut off, a life-threatening situation.
