What is Recommended for This Type of Ventral Hernia?

Recurrent ventral hernia
It is difficult to say what intervention you may benefit from without an examination. Given your recurrent hernia history, you may want to visit with a general surgeon for an evaluation. If you are experiencing a recurrent ventral hernia, then you also may benefit from an evaluation with a board certified plastic surgeon who may be able to evaluate you for component separation reconstruction of your abdominal wall. Best wishes.
