Why is surgery needed?

The operation pushes the bulge back into place and helps to strengthen the abdominal wall. Femoral hernia repair is a necessary procedure, since this type of hernia, if untreated, has a high risk of intestinal strangulation, which is a potentially life-threatening condition where a section of the intestine can become stuck in the femoral canal and cut off from the blood supply, which causes the tissue to die. Femoral hernia surgery will rid you of your hernia and prevent these complications from happening.
