    They had this story on Outside the Lines on sports hernias, there's this doctor in Germany who can have an athlete fully recovered one week after surgery. She's the only doctor in the world who fixes hernias this way though.

    With the way they repair them the chances of recurrence is very low. I've had double hernia surgery and I was back in the gym a few weeks later.

    what exactly is a hernia?

    I'm assuming its the not the same as heirneating a disc in your back?
