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

A hernia doctor will diagnose a hernia in a physical examination. The diagnosis of a hernia is easier as a bulge in the area where the hernia is present will be visible. For an accurate diagnosis, a patient may be asked to stand, strain or cough. In addition, imaging tests such as an MRI, CT scan, or abdominal ultrasound might be needed if the bulge isn't readily apparent.

Procedure

At Pristyn Care in India, we treat hernia with laparoscopic hernia repair as it has a shorter recovery time. The modern daycare surgical procedure entails the insertion of a laparoscope, a medical device that has an inbuilt camera, through a small incision in the abdomen. Once the incision is done, surgeons can view the internal structures with the camera. The surgeon can place a 3D Mesh to strengthen the weak muscle. The best hernia repair treatments are painless and performed when the patient is under anesthesia. A patient can go home the next day and recover to the fullest in less than a week after laparoscopic hernia repair.

Is laparoscopic suregry for inguinal hernia safe?

Yes, laparoscopic hernia surgery for inguinal hernia is an extremely safe process. The surgery is performed under the influence of anesthesia which makes it a painless process. Complications and side effects like infection and bleeding are very rare with laparoscopic hernia surgery. There is also a very low risk of any damage or injury to the blood vessels, the urinary bladder or any tissues nearby the surgical site.

Since there are no major complications in the process, most patients can go home the same day after laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery. The patient can resume work within two days after the surgery. But complete recovery takes almost a week depending on what mesh has been used in the hernia repair and what was the type of hernia that was treated in the process.

How to prepare for hernia surgery?

Preparation for hernia surgery does not require any special measures. But there a few things that the surgeon will recommend you to follow before the hernia surgery. The surgeon may advise the patient to lose weight to prevent any risk during the surgery. The patient will also be advised to stop smoking before the surgery for effective results. In case the patient is diabetic, controlling the sugar level is important. Before the surgery, the patient would be recommended to undergo urine tests, blood tests, a chest x-ray, and an electrocardiogram to confirm if all the organs are functioning well. A night before the surgery, the patient should stop eating or drinking anything.

Post-operative care after laparoscopic hernia surgery

After laparoscopic hernia surgery, the patient will be kept under observation for a few hours. The surgeon will monitor the patient's blood pressure, pulse rate, body temperature, and swelling in the surgical site if any. The patient is discharged within 48 hours. In case there are any complications such as bleeding, swelling or suture-pain (which are very rare to occur), the patient can be kept under observation for a longer time. The patient, in that case, will be given antibiotics or post-operative pain-medications.

The patient should take care that the surgical site is kept clean. In case of fever and abdominal pain post-inguinal surgery, the patients should report the same to the doctor. Until complete recovery, the patient should refrain from indulging in any strenuous activities or lifting any heavy weights. 

Risks and complications of laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery?

There are seldom any long-term complications that occur after laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery. But, on rare occasions, a patient may report the following complications:

  • Urinary tract injury
  • Recurrence of the hernia
  • Testicular complications
  • Pain due to the mesh
  • Intestinal injury
  • Postoperative bleeding
  • Fluid build-up at the site of the mesh

Complications and recurrence are much more in open hernia repair than in laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery.
