Advanced Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery

Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery is an advanced technique to treat the patients from hernia without any major side effects. A hernia is formed when an organ is pushed through an opening in the tissue or muscle that holds it in place. A hernia is common in the abdomen and it can occur in the belly button, upper thigh and groin areas. Though hernias are not fatal, yet they need surgical correction to avoid complications. The main cause for a hernia is strain and muscle weakness. The common causes of muscle weakness are aging process, persistent coughing, weakening of the muscles from injury and surgery or a congenital defect.

How is Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery Performed?

The laparoscopic surgeon inflates the patient’s abdominal region with carbon-dioxide gas. The gas gives the surgeon an adequate space and clear view of organs. Then, he will make small slits near the surgical site. A thin tube with a small camera called laparoscope is inserted through the incision. The surgeon uses images from the laparoscope and repairs hernia. Then the hole is covered with a mesh from inside the abdomen.Generally, the patient will be administered general anesthesia for laparoscopic hernia surgery.
