Dr J.S. Chowhan
Laparoscopic hernia repair is similar to other laparoscopic procedures and it has many advantages. General anesthesia is given during laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair, and a small incision is made in or simply below the umbilicus.
The abdomen is inflated with air so that the surgeon can easily see the abdominal organs. A thin, lighted scope called a laparoscope is inserted with the incision. The laparoscopic instruments to repair the inguinal hernia are inserted through other small incisions in the lower abdomen. Mesh is then placed within the defect to reinforce the abdominal wall.
There are lots of things to consider when deciding if you should have inguinal hernia repair by laparoscopic surgery, for example whether your hernia is incarcerated or strangulated and whether you have other conditions that need to be addressed before laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair surgical treatment is appropriate.
Most people who have laparoscopic hernia repair surgery are able to go home within 24 hours after the procedure. Recovery time is all about One to two weeks after laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair.
You almost certainly can return to light activity after 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. Strenuous exercise like cycling jogging and active sports should hold back until after 4 weeks of recovery.
Studies have discovered that individuals have less pain after laparoscopic hernia inguinal hernia repair than after open hernia surgery.
Laparoscopic surgical repair of inguinal hernia is recommended for inguinal hernias that are causing pain or potential future risk of any other symptoms and for hernias which are liable to develop as incarcerated or strangulated.
