What is Hernia?

A hernia occurs when an organ in the abdomen displaces due to the weakening of the muscles that surround the particular organ. There are several causes of hernia. Some of them are- consuming tobacco, smoking, poor nutrition, chronic constipation, etc. A hernia can occur in the abdomen, upper thigh area, belly button, or groins. Although rare, a hernia can occur in an infant also due to the weakness in the muscles during birth, but in general, it occurs later in life.

Diagnosis

During a physical exam, the doctor checks for the bulge in the growing area and you’ll likely be asked to stand and strain or cough. An imaging test like MRI or CT scan, abdominal ultrasound might be prescribed by a doctor in case diagnosis isn't readily apparent.

Surgery

A 3D mesh hernia surgery is the most advanced treatment option available for a hernia repair. In a normal mesh repair, a synthetic mesh is used to cover the opening. While in the 3D mesh repair, a mesh made of polymer is used to cover the defect from three sides. This is used to treat large-sized hernias and reduce the risk of recurrence.In an open surgery, a large incision is made over the defect area and the bulge is pushed back in the abdomen. It is a painful process that may take time to heal too.The laparoscopic technique is generally recommended and preferred by patients due to its lower recovery time, which is about 1-2 weeks. It is a surgical procedure in which a laparoscope, a telescope-like instrument, is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen. The camera on the laparoscope sends the video to the monitor, using which the specialists perform the surgery. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia

Why Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery Is A Better Option?

Our doctors leverage United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) approved surgical treatments that offer a lot of advantages. To explain a few.

Laparoscopic surgery is recommended by hernia doctors over “open” surgery for the following reasons-

  • Laparoscopic repair uses mesh for reinforcement, so it has a lower recurrence rate.
  • The recovery process is much less painful. But if you have weak muscles then you might experience pain. Contact your doctor immediately.
  • Little to no scarring.
  • These are performed on an outpatient basis, which means you can go home on the same day of the surgery. But you have to stay back if you show any sign of complication.
  • A quicker return to daily chores. Many people return to work within a week.
  • The need for daily dressing is not required.
  • The frequency of visits to the doctor is also reduced.

  • It's recommended that you take the shower the night before or the morning of the surgery.
  • If you face problems such as difficulties moving your bowels or anemia - similar preparation may be used after consulting with your doctor.
  • If you take drugs such as aspirin, blood thinners, anti-inflammatory medications (arthritis medications), and certain vitamins, they should be stopped for the first few days of your surgery.
  • Keep your stomach empty. Don't eat anything not even water after midnight or the night before your hernia surgery. The risk of developing complications increases during or after your surgery if you eat or drink anything before the surgery.
  • You can take the medicines that your doctor has told are permissible to take with a sip of water the morning of the surgery.
  • Arrange someone for help after your surgery. Plan to have someone who can drive you home post-surgery.
  • Quit or reduce smoking and consuming alcohol and arrange for any help that you may need at home.

By keeping all the above-mentioned points, you can easily prepare for hernia surgery and ensure it to be successful.

When to call or meet your doctor after hernia surgery

After undergoing hernia surgery, you may notice slight drainage, bruising, or slight swelling around the incision. However, this is normal and you don’t need to worry about it. Likewise, it's also normal to have a lump or hardness under or near the incision. You may also have bruising and some swelling of the genitalia, which is not uncommon.

However, call your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following signs or symptoms:-

  • Increased incisional pain, bleeding, or redness.
  • Inability to urinate within 12 hours
  • High fever with chills
  • Inability to tolerate diet due to nausea and vomiting that won't go away.
  • Foul-smelling discharge from the incision area
  • Chest pain or shortness of breath
  • Excessive swelling around the incision or in the scrotum

Factors deciding the overall cost of hernia surgery

The average cost of hernia surgery ranges between Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 100000. However, this is not a fixed cost. Several factors affect the final cost of hernia surgery such as:-

  • 01. Type of hernia There are six types of hernia known as inguinal hernia, umbilical hernia, femoral hernia, hiatal hernia, epigastric hernia, and incisional hernia. The type of hernia you are suffering from also determines the overall cost of your surgery.
  • 02. Type of surgery Hernia surgery is mainly done in two ways known as open surgery and laparoscopic surgery. The average cost of open surgery for a hernia in Ahmedabad ranges between Rs. 30,000 to 60,000. The average cost of laparoscopic surgery for a hernia in Ahmedabad ranges between Rs. 50,000 to 100000.
  • 03. Surgeon's experience A surgeon's experience also plays a significant role in finalizing the overall cost of the surgery. Usually, the fee of an experienced surgeon is way higher than the fee of the surgeon with minimum or no experience.
  • 04. Hospitalization Hospitalization can immensely affect the overall cost of hernia surgery. Whether you need hospitalization after hernia surgery or not depends on several factors such as the type of hernia surgery you are undergoing, your overall health, etc. Laparoscopic surgery is a daycare procedure where you don't need hospitalization.

Apart from all the above, many factors are there that significantly affect the overall cost of hernia surgery such as medication post-procedure and follow-up meetings with the surgeon.

Benefits of laparoscopic hernia surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is considered the best method to treat hernia as it's a modern and advanced way to treat the problem. If you are suffering from a hernia and seeking the best and painless treatment in Ahmedabad, you should consider opting for this advanced painless and bloodless procedure.

The following are the top benefits of choosing laparoscopic surgery for hernia treatment.

Small incisions — Laparoscopic surgery involves small incisions. Therefore, the risk of bleeding or infection diminishes. Also, this procedure doesn't result in wounds or scars.

  • Laparoscopic surgery is the best procedure if you want to get rid of a hernia without any fear of pain, bleeding, infection, or other complications.
  • No risk of complications — During laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon uses a medical instrument called a laparoscope that has a small camera and light on one end.
  • With the help of the camera and light, the surgeon sees the inside of the abdomen and performs the surgery precisely, diminishing the risk of complications.
  • High success rate — The success rate of laparoscopic hernia surgery is as high as 95-98 percent and the risk of complications is as low as almost zero. However, one thing you should keep in mind is that you choose an experienced and reliable surgeon for laparoscopic hernia surgery.
  • Recovery — Above all, the best part of laparoscopic hernia surgery is that it promotes quick, painless, and comfortable recovery unlike open surgery of hernia. You can resume your daily routine within 2-3 days but complete recovery may take around 2-3 weeks.
