Qualified patients with an inguinal hernia may receive no cost hernia repair and pain medication

JBR Clinical Research is looking for individuals that have been diagnosed with an inguinal hernia.

Why participate in this clinical research study?

Clinical studies are the fastest and safest way to find the effectiveness of pain medications that work and are only possible with the help of participants like you. Compensation varies by study, time involved, and whether you complete all visits and procedures in the study. Every volunteer study at JBR Clinical Research is approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to make sure the risks are as low as possible and are worth any potential benefits to the volunteer.

What to expect.

Patients that qualify for the study, will receive no cost hernia repair surgery by our board-certified surgeon in our state-of-the-art facility, study related care, and be compensated for their time and travel.

What is an Inguinal Hernia

An inguinal hernia is more common in men and usually occurs in the inguinal canal in the groin where the spermatic cord enters the scrotum. In women, the inguinal canal is where the ligament attaches to the uterus.

What causes an Inguinal Hernia?

An inguinal hernia occurs when soft tissue–usually part of the membrane lining the abdominal cavity (omentum) or part of the intestine–protrudes through a weak point in the abdominal muscles. When pressure is exerted in the abdomen, it increases pressure on the weak spot and can be painful. The pressure and resulting pain may be caused by:

  • Straining during bowel movements
  • Strenuous physical activity like lifting something heavy
  • Chronic cough or sneezing
  • Pregnancy
  • Ascites (Fluid build-up in the abdomen)
  • Aging

Hernia Treatment Options

Not all hernias need immediate surgery, but if you are experiencing pain or your hernia is growing, you may need hernia surgery. Hernias can be repaired surgically or laparoscopically (a minimally invasive procedure).
