Preventing Hernias

A hernia occurs when an organ lining tears and the organ pushes into the torn spot. This can be an extremely painful and debilitating injury to suffer. Some people are born with hernias, or have a hereditary predisposition to develop one, but many hernias are preventable. The most common hernia treatment is surgical repair, such as hernioplasty, in which a skin mesh is used to seal the tear and keep organs in place. Unfortunately, some of these surgeries can have serious complications, especially repairs that involve the AlloDerm hernia patch.

If you or someone you love has suffered complications after receiving an AlloDerm skin graft, you may be entitled to financial compensation for any resulting medical expenses or emotional trauma. Contact a dedicated AlloDerm lawsuit attorney from Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 today to learn more about your rights.

Ways to Prevent Hernias

Knowing how to prevent hernias can help you avoid invasive surgeries that could result in painful complications. Here are some tips:

  • Avoid heavy lifting, as this type of strain is one of the primary causes of hernias
  • If you must do heavy lifting, always lift properly by lifting with your legs, not your back
  • People who are overweight are more likely to develop a hernia, so try to maintain a healthy weight
  • Smokers are also more susceptible to developing a hernia, so avoid smoking, or consider quitting if you do smoke

Unfortunately, even if you follow these tips, you may still develop a hernia and run the risk of further suffering if you receive a defective hernia patch.
