We correct and prevent hernias.

Hernias can happen from the strain of lifting heavy objects, persistent coughing or sneezing, or other bowel issues like diarrhea or constipation.

The Dr. Susan Seman Solution performs hernia repair in West Bloomfield Township. The most common hernias occur when the intestine pushes through part of the abdominal wall. Hernias are caused by a combination of pressure and an opening or weakness in your muscle. Hernia repair restores the intestine to its original position and strengthens the surrounding muscle and tissue to prevent further hernias.

How Hernia Repair Surgery Works


Hernia Treamtment

A hernia is usually treated with surgery under general anesthesia. Before your surgery you will have a physical exam and may have other pre-operative tests done, such as blood tests or CT scans. The Dr. Susan Seman Solution has 3 available methods for hernia repair in West Bloomfield Township.



In open hernia repair, Dr. Seman makes an incision in the groin, locates the hernia and pushes the intestine back into place. After the intestine is restored, she will reinforce the abdominal wall with stitches or mesh.



A minimally invasive technique, a laparoscopic hernia repair uses a small tube inserted in a small incision near the belly button. Dr. Seman will use mesh to strength the abdominal wall.



Similar to a laparoscopic procedure, a robot assisted hernia repair involves Dr. Seman handling the surgical tools with a console rather than directly.



You should be able to go home the day of or the day after your operation. Our health care team will provide you with detailed post operative instructions to support your healing and recovery.
