Through Our Patients’ Eyes

At Minnesota Hernia Center we pride ourselves in using Enhanced Recovery Protocols for preoperative optimization and faster healing after hernia surgery.

Susan was diagnosed with a large diaphragmatic hernia (Morgagni hernia) containing intraabdominal organs, which were herniating into the chest cavity and partly compressed her right lung.
