    Hernia Surgery Cost:

    Some of the factors that affect Hernia Surgery cost include-

    Doctor’s Consultation 

    As with any cost factor, your doctor’s expertise and surgical experience alters your surgery cost. A specialist trained in advanced laparoscopy may charge anywhere between INR 1000- INR 1500 per consultation. However, a slightly less experienced doctor may counsel for anywhere between INR 500- INR 1000.

    Diagnostic charges

    While a physical exam is usually enough to detect a hernia, your doctor may suggest one or more imaging tests such as X-Ray, Ultrasound, MRI  and CT Scan to assess the exact location and severity of your hernia. Though rare, at times, a blood test may also be suggested to assess any underlying conditions and suggest a plausible treatment method. 

    Type and Location of Hernia

    Depending on its location, hernia is majorly classified into six (6) types. While a majority can be treated through a general surgeon, some may require specific expertise. Similarly, these specific types of hernia may also require more advanced diagnosis, treatment method or specific medical equipments.


    Size and Severity

    As with any treatment, the size and severity of hernia play a major role in the marker of final surgery cost as it directly decides the level of surgeon expertise required, method of surgery, surgery time and possible complications. A general estimate for hernia operation cost in its initial stages runs between INR 70,000 to INR 85,000. Whereas, a more complex and last grade treatment may range anywhere between INR 85,000 to INR 1,00,000 and more.

    Age of the Patient

    A hernia can happen at any age. However, hernia in infants and older ages at times require more expertise and additional care. This is why it may act as a varying factor in some cases.  

    Hospital Charges 

    The choice of your hospital almost invariably affects the total surgery cost. This is largely because of the difference in hospital’s amenities, choice of operating surgeons, infrastructure, and the holistic patient experience. The choice between a single or shared, general or deluxe room also supplements the final cost. 

    Method of surgery

    The method of surgery most certainly defines the surgery cost. As laparoscopic surgery is more advanced, and requires specialised medical tools, it costs higher than the traditional open cut surgery. 

    Surgical Mesh 

    A hernia surgical mesh is a specialized medical instrument used to provide extra support to the damaged tissue as it heals after the surgery. It is used in more than 90% of hernia repair cases and rests as an important factor for determining specific surgery cost. Factors that differ the cost of different surgical meshes may include

    1. The type of surgical mesh (patches, plugs or sheets)
    2. Long term/ Short term (Absorbable or Non Absorbable)
    3. Composition (Synthetic/ Animal Derived/ Composite)
    4. Brand Manufacturer (Local/ Home grown)

    Pre and post medication and follow up

    The success of a surgery almost as equally depends on the post medications and follow up as it depends on the surgery itself. This is why medications and follow up are another factor that invariably add to the total cost.

    Does Insurance Cover Hernia Surgery?

    Yes, since hernia repair surgery falls under the list of necessary medical procedures, the basic treatment cost is covered by almost all major general and healthcare insurance providers in India.

    However, since every policy is different and so is the individual case, the cost bracket may differ. 

    Please note that as with any other treatment, insurance covers only the surgical expenses and you must be hospitalized for at least 24 hours to file the claim. Depending on the nature of your policy, you may opt for cashless/ reimbursement claims. 

    Post approval, insurance covers all necessary costs including diagnostics, consultation, medications, hospital admission, surgery, bed charges, stay and other miscellaneous consumables.

    • Manipal Cigna

    FAQs on Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery Cost

    Does insurance cover hernia Surgery ?

    Yes, most major insurance companies cover Hernia Surgery as long as you meet their requirements. 

    What is the best technique to repair a hernia?

    There are three techniques available to treat hernias – open, laparoscopic, and robotics hernia repair surgery. Among all these, laparoscopic is the best option to treat a hernia. The surgeon may recommend open surgery if the patient has an inguinal hernia.

    Is hernia mesh used in all types of hernia repair surgery?

    It is almost used in 90% of surgeries to treat the hernia. By using mesh, the hernia is strengthened, and the chance of recurrence is reduced. 

    What can trigger the hernia?

    Here are some leading causes of hernia. Some of them are:

    • Heavy weight lifting 
    • Straining during coughing, sneezing 
    • Obesity with poor nutrition
    • Consumption of tobacco, smoking, and alcohol

    What happens if hernias are left untreated?

    An untreated hernia might cause the protruding intestine to grow larger and become strangulated, which reduces blood supply to surrounding tissues.

    Do hernias get worse with age?

    Hernias tend to grow larger over time due to weaker abdominal muscles and bulging tissue. Inguinal hernia is most common in patients older than 65. 

    What are the warning signs of hernias?

    The warning signs of hernia include the following-

    • A lump or swelling in the abdomen that does not disappear when you lie down.
    • Swelling or bulging in the thighs or scrotum.
    • Pain that continues to worsen.
    • When attempting to lift items, you experience terrible discomfort.
    • A bulge that becomes larger by the day.
    • A feeling of being full even after bowel motions.

    Can a pregnant woman undergo Hernia Surgery ?

    It is usually not recommended to undergo hernia repair surgery during pregnancy. In some cases, surgery may be performed during the second trimester of pregnancy if the condition is critical. 

    Who has a high risk of developing a hernia?

    Some of the conditions are mentioned below; those who have a high risk of developing a hernia may need to seek medical attention urgently. 

    • Old age 
    • Premature birth
    • Low weight 
    • Chronic cough
    • Pregnancy
    • Smoking 
    • Genetic problem 

    Why do people get hernias?

    Hernias are believed to develop due to weakened abdominal or groin muscles that may have been preexisting at birth or brought on by aging and repeated strains in those areas. 

     

    What can be hernia mesh price?

    Hernia mesh price depends on the material used to create it. On average, the mesh can cost somewhere between Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 40,000.
