Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery
Several different types of hernias are treated with a less invasive surgical technique called laparoscopic hernia repair. In this surgery, the surgeon is guided via three to four tiny incisions by a device known as a laparoscope, or a thin tube with a camera on the end. To hold the projecting tissues in place, mesh may occasionally be employed. Laparoscopic hernia repairs typically take an hour or less to complete.
Why Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Is Performed
A hernia is an opening in the abdominal wall brought on by a weakening in the muscles. Owing to this weakness, internal organs like the intestines or abdominal tissues may occasionally protrude into the hole. Infection and/or blood loss to the gut are two serious health problems that hernias can cause if left untreated.
