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.

Types Of Hernia

Ventral hernia

A hernia ventral develops in the abdominal wall, along the midline, as a result of muscular weakening that causes a gap. Usually, abdominal tissues or a part of the intestines protrude into the hole caused by a ventral hernia. You can develop a ventral hernia at any age.

Recurrent hernia

One of the risks associated with hernia repair surgery is that the hernia can return. If the hernia repair fails and the hernia reappears, this is referred to as a recurrent hernia.

Groin hernia

An abdominal protrusion called a hernia results from compromised abdominal muscles. When the abdominal muscles are weak, abdominal tissues and/or organs, such the intestines, might protrude into a weak area. When this occurs in the lower abdominal wall close to the crotch, it is referred to as a groin hernia, also known as an inguinal hernia. Groin hernias can happen to both men and women, although males are more prone to get them.
