Laparoscopy Hernia Repair Procedure
Hernia is a defect or weakness of the abdominal wall muscle which could be congenital or acquired and usually presents with an abdominal wall bulge with on and off pain and discomfort, especially during straining and heavy activity. For years open operation was the gold standard for hernia repair, but since thirty years ago when the minimally invasive surgery was initially introduced to surgical society, this approach has gained popularity among surgeons and population as a reasonable and safe way to repair the hernia defect.
What is Laparoscopy Hernia Repair?
Laparoscopic hernia repair is a minimally invasive surgical technique to repair the hernia defect which offers less pain, faster recovery and quicker return to work with less long term complications compare to the open hernia repair. In this procedure, the surgeon creates few small incisions to insert a scope and special instruments inside the abdominal cavity and perform the hernia repair.
Surgical techniques for laparoscopy hernia repair have continued to be refined in hopes of providing a repair with less chance of recurrence, less acute and chronic pain, less complications, faster recovery and better long term quality of life.
