With the phenomenal medical advances over the past several decades, not only has the diagnosis of hernia become a lot easier but the methods of treating it are also less complicated.

Types of Hernia Surgeries:

  • There are two main types of surgical procedures adapted for the rectification of Hernia. which are either the laparoscopic Hernia Surgery or the open Hernia Surgery technique.

  • Over the years a serious debate has ensued within the medical fraternity about which technique is the best not only in terms of efficiency but also for minimizing the chances of recurrence of the Hernia.

  • However, rather than focusing on the superiority of one procedure over another, it is important to have an individualistic approach to each surgery and the difference between both and the advantages they offer.

  • Laparoscopic Technique: It is a more advanced technique. It requires the administration of complete general anesthesia and the hernia is repaired from the inside with the help of advanced laparoscopic instruments, through a small cut at the place of the Hernia, where the abdomen is insufflated with gas (CO2), an Endoscope, and surgical instruments are inserted through small holes in the abdominal wall, then release the hernial sack away from the muscles of the abdominal wall, and finally close the defect in the muscles and support it with a mesh.  The total time required for the surgery is about 50-60 minutes.
