Through a single incision, the doctor may tighten the sphincter, reconstruct the sphincter, or make the diaphragm's opening smaller.
The hernia bulge is pushed back into place, or sometimes removed or tied off. The doctor sutures the weakened muscle and may sew a mesh patch over the weak area to prevent another hernia.
A hernia is repaired with the help of a mesh patch over the weakened tissue or muscles. To reduce incisions, the abdomen is filled with a non-harmful medical gas to expand the area for viewing.
In this procedure, the stomach is placed in its natural position and the opening in the diaphragm where the stomach pushed through is closed.

Dr. K has been my Doctor since 2002... he’s the best... I sent both my sister and my cousin to him and all of us had great success... He has the best bedside manner of any doctor I’ve ever known or had any experience with in my life.
Dr Keshishian is the best. That's all there is to it -- he is THE BEST. He understood my body's needs and set forth to correct the problem.
Excellent, caring doctor with great staff. Terrific comprehensive follow up care after effective surgery. He is very honest and upfront and takes as much time as the patient needs to answer questions and to address any and all concerns.
Great and friendly service. All questions were clearly answered and any concerns promptly addressed. My sister and friend recommended Dr. K and I'm glad they did. I'd also recommend him and his friendly staff.
