It has proved to show great results in the last few years. This surgery is more commonly performed to treat; bilateral inguinal hernias, recurrent hernia, and ventral hernias. This surgery facilitates a speedy recovery and therefore has become a preferable option to athletics in case of hernia.
Laparoscopic hernia repair surgery is performed in different ways depending on the location and symptoms. The different procedures are described below: -
Laparoscopic surgery involves a small incision of about 1-2 cm at the abdomen area. A tiny camera and small surgical equipment are used to repair a hernia through the incision. Damage to the surrounding tissue is reduced with this technique.
During the surgery, the peritoneum is separated using a balloon between the abdomen and the overlying muscle making space for the camera. The hernia is then detected and pulled back to its original position.
