Hernia Surgery

A hernia is characterized by fatty tissue and/or intestines bulging through a sac in the abdomen. Hernia surgery will close the opening, replacing your organs to their original positions, thus alleviating discomfort caused by the condition.

Some hernia conditions produce no symptoms, so they can be difficult to detect. Dr. Moein will recommend hernia surgery for patients who can see the bulge through their skin and may also be experiencing pain.

Dr. Moein offers both laparoscopic and robotic hernia surgery, both with and without mesh.

Robotic hernia surgery is similar to laparoscopic surgery with the only difference being that Dr. Moeinolmolki attends the surgery in a control room separate from the patient. The robotic technology provides Dr. Moein with a 3-D imaging framework of the internal abdominal wall, making the results even more precise for an optimal outcome.

Gallbladder Disease Surgery

Your gallbladder is an organ that stores bile, which is made by your liver and delivers it into the small intestine. Up to 15% of Americans develop gallstones. While most people experience no symptoms from these stones, some patients can experience intermittent blockage of the duct exiting their gallbladder. This can result in intermittent pain after eating. Sometimes this blockage can result in infection and inflammation of the gallbladder. Gallbladder surgery by Dr. Moein can alleviate your symptoms for good.

Otherwise referred to as a cholecystectomy, removal of the gallbladder is performed laparoscopically by removing your gallbladder entirely through a tiny incision near your belly button. The loss of gallbladder will mean that bile moves directly from your liver to your small intestine. The procedure is common with most people living perfectly healthy lives without their gallbladders.

In most cases, you can expect to return to your regular activities within two weeks. Ask Dr. Moein about the specifics of your case when considering gallbladder disease surgery in Los Angeles or anywhere else in the world.

Hiatal Hernia Repair (GERD)

A hiatal hernia is a condition where the upper part of your stomach begins to bulge through a large muscle (diaphragm) that separates your abdomen from your chest. Within your diaphragm is a tiny opening that the esophagus passes through before connecting to your stomach. When you have a hiatal hernia, your stomach is pushing through that opening and into your chest.  

Many Hiatal hernias never cause any problems. Sometimes, however, they allow food and stomach acid to back-up into your esophagus, which can cause a host of problems. Issues associated with hernia include heartburn, regurgitation of food and stomach acid into the mouth, shortness of breath, bloody vomiting, and black stool (which is an indicator of gastrointestinal bleeding).

Dr. Moein will generally recommend hiatal hernia repair for patients considered at higher risk, such as those over 50 and with a BMI over 40.

Treatment for hiatal hernia varies, depending on the severity of the condition. Many times, Dr. Moein will prescribe antacids or prescription medications to manage less severe cases of hiatal hernia.

For more severe cases, such as when inflammation occurs or there is a narrowing of the esophagus, Dr. Moein may recommend laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair.

Using a tiny camera, Dr. Moein will identify the area of the hernia, return your stomach to its proper location, and narrow your diaphragm hole.

You can expect to return to your normal activities within two to four weeks.

If you are experiencing a hiatal hernia, let Dr. Moein help to relieve your symptoms. Schedule an initial consultation today and ask if hiatal hernia repair is right for you.
