Hiatal Hernia

The diaphragm is a muscle that separates the chest and the abdomen. If the diaphragm has a defect or weak spot, it may cause hiatal hernia, which is slightly different from other types of hernia. The patient’s gastric acid will therefore flow back to the esophagus, causing pain, heartburn, and esophageal erosion. This kind of hernia repair surgery is complicated and requires a long hospital stay.
