Hernia Repair Surgery

Hernia repair surgery is also known as herniorrhaphy or hernioplasty and it is used for the treatment of a hernia. There are three types of hernia surgery – Open Hernia Surgery, Laparoscopic Surgery, and Robotic Surgery.

Types of Hernia

Hernia can occur at different places between the chest and the thigh and depending upon their location, it can be:

  • Inguinal hernia: when the hernia or bulge is present in the upper most part of thigh.
  • Femoral hernia: similar in location to inguinal hernia. It is more common in females.
  • Epigastric hernia: when hernia occurs in between umbilicus or belly button and chest.
  • Umbilical hernia: when the bulge pushes through the belly button or just above it.
  • Ventral or incisional hernia: when hernia occurs through the previous surgical scar.

Causes of Hernias

All hernias are occurred by a combination of pressure and an area of weakened or breached fascia, muscle tissue. In certain cases, a congenital issue makes way to muscle weakness, and a hernia becomes highly possible.

In other circumstances, a hernia happens when you apply undue pressure in your abdomen. Some of the examples include:

  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Persistent sneezing, coughing
  • Lifting heavy objects with improper method or inadequate strength
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Poor nutrition

Treatment of Hernia

A hernia is generally treated with a surgical procedure. There are three different types of hernia surgery: Open Hernia Repair Surgery, Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Surgery, and Robotic Hernia Repair Surgery.

How is laparoscopic hernia repair surgery performed?

Laparoscopic hernia surgery also known as minimally invasive hernia surgery is performed with help of a laparoscope and other special surgical tools. In Laparoscopic hernia surgery, your doctor makes a few small incisions close to the hernia site to insert a tube with a camera on top (Laparoscope) and fix the hernia. Recovery time in laparoscopic hernia surgery is generally faster and a patient can resume normal activities a week early than with open surgery.
