If you've ever had a hernia, you probably remember just how painful this condition can be. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to help protect the strength of your muscles and lower your risk of experiencing a hernia in the future.

For example, you may want to incorporate more beneficial exercises into your weekly routine like yoga, pilates, sit-ups, crunches, or aerobic exercises like cycling, swimming, or running. A healthier diet and smoking cessation are also great options for preventing hernias.

Recovering From Gastric Sleeve Surgery
(http://ow.ly/8uXa30nklHe)

It is very important to follow your doctor's orders as closely as possible after gastric sleeve surgery, including the use of multivitamins and any supplements your doctor may recommend. Knowing what to expect after this procedure will help you feel more confident going into it.

Once you're back home after the surgery, your doctor will likely recommend you follow a liquid-only diet for the first several days. After that, you may gradually begin introducing soft or blended foods until you can feel comfortable eating solid foods again.

A Roux-en-Y gastric bypass often referred to as a gastric bypass, is a type of weight loss surgery designed to reduce the available space in your stomach while also causing food to bypass a part of the small intestine, reducing caloric intake.

Gastric bypass is generally reserved for patients who need to lose more than 80 pounds, or if they have a body mass index of 35 or higher. Schedule an appointment at Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery, PC to learn more about gastric bypass.

The Basic Facts About Ventral Hernia
(http://ow.ly/WNl630nklH8)

Ventral hernias are caused by weakness in your abdominal wall; this weakness could be caused by a congenital disability, a previous abdominal surgery, an abdominal injury, obesity, pregnancy, or a heavy physical strain, such as may happen while lifting or pushing.

If you want to find the quickest, easiest, and least painful method for effectively treating a ventral hernia, talk to a doctor who specializes in robotic and laparoscopic surgical techniques.

Using Surgery to Repair a Hernia
(http://ow.ly/Lcbv30nklH6)

If there is a weak area in your abdominal muscles that allows part of an organ or other tissue to push through and create a bulge, you have what's known as a hernia. This injury can affect patients of all ages.

One of the best ways to repair a hernia is through the use of minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeries — these are known for their shorter recovery times, reduced pain, and improved patient outcomes.
