Dr. Towfigh has the Expertise to Diagnose and Treat a Spigelian Hernia

At Beverly Hills Hernia Center, those suffering from a Spigelian hernia will find effective diagnosis and treatment that leads to rapid recovery.

LOS ANGELES, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- At the Beverly Hills Hernia Center, board certified general surgeon and hernia specialist Shirin Towfigh, M.D., F.A.C.S., brings world-class experience and skill to patients who are suffering from the effects of a hernia. As the only surgeon in the Western United States to concentrate exclusively on the alleviation of hernia symptoms in men and women alike, Dr. Towfigh is often able to diagnose and treat hernias that have gone undetected by other doctors. That's why, for those suffering from the notoriously difficult to detect spigelian hernia, the expertise of Dr. Towfigh can be particularly helpful.

Spigelian hernias are also commonly known as spontaneous hernias because they can develop suddenly after injury or trauma to the abdominal area. While most hernias thrive just below layers of fat, a Spigelian hernia is notable for occurring in a couple of layers of muscle, within the abdominal wall. Because of this, there is commonly very little outward evidence of swelling, making it possible for health issues to go undetected for longer periods of time. However, there are a few symptoms that may indicate the presence of a Spigelian hernia, including:

  • Recurring pain in the immediate area
  • Constant dull pain
  • A sudden decrease in the proper function of the intestines

Further still, though the protrusion of a Spigelian hernia may be small, for those with relatively little fat in the abdominal wall, the hernia may be visible and will also be soft to the touch.

Unlike many other hernias, a Spigelian hernia can often be mistaken for other inner abdominal problems. Though these hernias are rare and difficult to detect, it is worth noting that they may cause damage if left untreated. For instance, if a Spigelian hernia develops in a location that obstructs the intestines, blood flow to them may be compromised, resulting in infection and possibly death. Because of the potentially serious consequences of a Spigelian hernia, early diagnosis is prudent and so it is wise to entrust a specialist, such as Dr. Towfigh.

For those suffering from the effects of a Spigelian hernia, Dr. Towfigh and her team at Beverly Hills Hernia Center can provide a thorough examination, accurate diagnosis and treatment that frequently leads to rapid recovery. She has found great success while treating all types of abdominal wall hernias and their complications. She works closely with experts throughout the globe, gleaning invaluable information on the latest and most effective treatment methods. By using various cutting-edge technologies and surgical modalities, Dr. Towfigh has been able to treat thousands of men and women suffering from the effects of hernias. She understands that every patient's needs are unique, and thus, every treatment provided at Beverly Hills Hernia Center is specifically customized to treat the individual needs.

If you or a loved one is suffering from a Spigelian hernia, or any related issue, don't hesitate to contact Dr. Towfigh at 310-358-5020. You can also learn more about her approach to hernias via her website at www.BeverlyHillsHerniaCenter.com.
