What is hernia surgery?
It is the surgery or operation to repair a hernia. A hernia is tissue that protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal wall. Your intestine may leak through this weakened area. During surgery to repair the hernia, the bulging tissue is reintroduced. Your abdominal wall is strengthened and supported with sutures (stitches), and sometimes with mesh. This repair can be done through open or laparoscopic surgery. You and your surgeon will determine which type of surgery is ideal for you.
How is the procedure carried out?
Hernia Surgery is carried out through general anesthesia and with a minimally invasive approach, resulting in a fast recovery. Laparoscopic procedures are minimally invasive techniques, this method uses several small incisions, rather than one large incision as in traditional surgery. Fiber optic cameras and specialized instruments are used to perform the procedure through these small incisions. This approach offers many benefits for the patient, such as:
- Less recovery time.
- Less scars.
- Less discomfort or pain.
- Quicker return to normal activities.
