In brief: Yes
An incisional hernia can occur following any abdominal surgery, although it is more likely with midline incisions.
Patient-factors that can contribute to hernia formation include obesity, poor nutrition, smoking, steroid use, and multiple prior operations. Surgical repair is quite common and very effective.
