A hernia that appears at the site of a previous surgery is known as a ventral or incisional hernia. These hernias can appear weeks, months, or even years after surgery and can vary in size from small to very large and complex. If you think you have a ventral hernia, it's important to see your doctor because it may become extremely difficult to repair. Ethicon creates many innovative mesh products that your surgeon can choose from to repair your ventral hernia.
