Traditional Hernia Repair
The process used in a traditional hernia surgery requires an incision of between three and six inches, which allows your hernia surgeon to get a clear look at the problem. During your herniorrhaphy, the displaced tissue and organs will be replaced in their proper position. The muscle wall will then be repaired using stitching. In some cases, mesh will be used to reinforce the wall and restore it to its normal strength.
Laparoscopic and Minimally Invasive Methods
Laparoscopic procedures are minimally invasive and can reduce the time needed for hernia surgery recovery. These surgical methods involve the use of miniaturized cameras and instruments to perform all repairs through very small incisions. Mesh is often used to reinforce the muscle wall in laparoscopic surgeries. Because the incisions are so small, they present a reduced risk of infection and require much shorter healing times. This can allow you to get back to your normal activities and routine as quickly as possible after your surgery is complete.
