If the hernia is growing larger or causing pain then the hernia surgery is recommended to fix your painful hernias. The hernia surgeon repairs the hernia by sewing the hole in the abdominal wall closed during the surgery.
Although surgical options of hernias depend on the location and type of hernia, there are two main types of hernia surgery.
- Open surgery: Most of the hernias in the abdominal wall are fixed under general anesthesia through cuts or large incisions. The surgeon gently pushes the hernia back into place, tie it off or remove it. Then the surgeon will close the weak area of the muscle where the hernia is pushed through with stitches.
- Laparoscopic surgery: Laparoscopic hernia surgery is similar to other laparoscopic procedures. The surgeon uses a tiny camera and miniaturized surgical equipment to repair the hernia through small incisions in the lower abdomen. Laparoscopic repair of a hernia is less likely to cause infections. Also, we must follow appropriate precautions after hernia surgery.
It’s important to recognize the early symptoms of a hernia because untreated hernias will not heal on their own. However, with early medical care, you can minimize the effects of hernia and avoid life-threatening complications. Our hernia surgery experts at Kalp Hospital are capable of treating all types of hernias in a pain-free and patient-friendly manner.
