    Treatment and Diagnosis – Inguinal Hernia

    The only treatment to permanently repair an inguinal hernia is surgery. If the hernia does not cause any painful symptoms, the doctor may recommend watchful waiting. But, in most cases, doctors recommend surgical repair of hernia to prevent potential complications. There are two types of hernia repair surgery.

    1. Open hernia repair – This is the conventional and most common surgery for inguinal hernia treatment. In open surgery for hernia repair, the surgeon makes a cut or incision in the groin. The surgeon pushes the hernia back inside the abdomen and closes the abdominal opening with stitches. In case the opening is large, the surgeon may use a synthetic mesh to strengthen the closure through which the hernia protrudes.

    2. Laparoscopic hernia repair – This is comparatively a much-advanced procedure for inguinal hernia treatment. The surgical procedure involves minute incisions through which the doctor inserts a thin laparoscope with a camera attached to it. The camera guides the doctor with detailed image viewing inside the abdomen. The doctor in this procedure may use a synthetic mesh to strengthen the abdominal wall. The procedure in the most common language is also known as minimally invasive surgery.

    3. Robotic hernia repair – Robotic surgical procedure for inguinal hernia repair is very similar to that of laparoscopic hernia surgery. The surgery involves the use of a laparoscope the guides the surgeon to view inside the abdomen and repair the hernia. The only difference between a laparoscopic hernia surgery and a robotic hernia repair lies in the fact in that later procedure, the surgeon operates the surgical instruments from the console in the operation theatre.

    What Tests Are Done to Diagnose Inguinal Hernia?

    An inguinal hernia is usually diagnosed by a physical examination. The doctor may ask you to cough or strain during the exam to see when the hernia bulge is most prominent. If the hernia is not visible even after doing this, the doctor may ask you to get a few imaging tests done such as a CT scan, an abdominal ultrasound, or MRI.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What kind of doctor should I see for Inguinal Hernia?

    If your hernia is not showing any severe signs, you can consult with a primary healthcare provider. But if your hernia has grown bigger and you want to get rid of it, it is best if you consult a laparoscopic surgeon who is a hernia specialist.

    Is there any Pristyn Care Inguinal Hernia Treatment clinic is near me in Gurgaon?

    There are several Pristyn Care clinics in Gurgaon where you can get through consultation and effective treatment for inguinal hernia treatment. Talk to our medical assistance executive to know which clinic location would be most suitable for you.

    How is Inguinal Hernia done in hospital in Gurgaon?

    In all Pristyn Care-associated hospitals in Gurgaon city, our expert laparoscopic surgeons prefer performing inguinal hernia surgeries using laparoscopic technique. In this procedure, the surgeon makes tiny incisions and inserts a laparoscope. Using the device, the surgeon pushes back the hernia, covers it with a mesh, and then seals the incisions.

    What is the cost of Inguinal Hernia in Gurgaon?

    The cost of inguinal hernia surgery in Gurgaon city may range from INR 55000 to INR 260000. The price may differ from person to person depending on factors like the consultation fee of the doctor, the severity of the condition, the hospital charges, and other miscellaneous expenses.)

    How Inguinal Hernia surgery is done?

    Inguinal hernia surgery can be done either through open or laparoscopic surgery. Depending upon your condition, the doctor will decide which method should you opt for.

    Why inguinal hernia is more common in males than in females?

    Men often have a higher risk of developing inguinal hernia because the male testicle descends from the abdomen and then goes down in the groin region to reach the scrotum (the sac that holds the testicles). Normally, there is an opening from where the testicle descends and it closes shortly after birth. However, in some males, the opening doesn’t close creates a weak spot in the groin region and leads to an inguinal hernia.

    Is there an alternative treatment for inguinal hernia?

    No. The doctors usually recommend watchful waiting if the hernia is not that serious. During this period, you can take preventative measures to stop the hernia from progressing. If prevention doesn’t work, then ultimately surgery will be required to treat the hernia.

    Do the scars from inguinal hernia surgery go away?

    The extent of scarring after inguinal hernia surgery depends on the technique used for the repair. If the open technique was used, there will be a single long scar on the abdomen that may fade after 4-6 months. If the laparoscopic technique is used, there will be 2-3 small-sized scars that will disappear within 3-4 months and may become almost unnoticeable.

    Is hernia mesh removed after the abdominal muscle wall heals?

    If needed, the doctor may perform hernia mesh removal surgery in patients who experience chronic pain, infection, or other mesh-related complications.

    What is the difference between inguinal hernia and femoral hernia?

    The key difference between inguinal and femoral hernia is the location from where the intestine or tissues bulges out. The inguinal hernia develops when the tissues push through an opening in the inguinal canal. In a femoral hernia, the tissues push through the femoral canal from where the femoral artery and vein passes. Both types of hernias can arise in both men and women.

    What are the benefits of undergoing minimally invasive and advanced inguinal hernia surgeries?

    Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive approach to repair a hernia where the laparoscopic surgeon uses not more than 3 very small incisions. The surgeon inserts a laparoscope through the incision which provides a detailed view of the inside of the abdomen. The protruded hernia is pushed back and the abdominal wall is strengthened with a mesh to prevent the chances of occurrence of an inguinal hernia in the future. In recent times, more and more healthcare experts are shifting towards leveraging laparoscopic or minimally invasive hernia repair surgery clearly for the benefits of the procedure. Some of the key benefits of the surgical procedure are:

    Smaller incisions

    – Unlike conventional surgery for inguinal hernia treatment, minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery involves much smaller incisions. As such, the chances of scars and wounds are much lesser too.

    Faster recovery

    – A person undergoing open surgery for inguinal hernia repair requires at least two weeks to recover fully and resume his or her regular tasks. However, recovery in the case of laparoscopic surgery is much simpler and faster. Since the surgery does not involve any major cuts, the person can get back to regular work life in just 3-4 days.

    Reduced complications

    – The chances of risks and complications in the case of a laparoscopic is much lesser than in open surgery for inguinal hernia repair. If the patient diligently follows the advice and post-operative care tips given by the doctor, there is a very good chance that the patient may recover well without any complications. If you are suffering from symptoms that indicate the presence of an inguinal hernia, you can consult with experienced inguinal hernia doctors in the Gurgaon and undergo effective laparoscopic surgical treatment.

    What happens if you do not get inguinal hernia treatment in time?

    Like any other health problem, hernia too gets worse if treatment is not provided in time. What starts as a simple bulge, may get worse over time and turn into something serious if not provided with adequate treatment. Delaying inguinal hernia treatment may result in severe complications such as hernia strangulation, incarceration of hernias and even intestinal blockage. The hernia in all conditions may not get larger if not provided with treatment, but it will surely not grow smaller. The risks of an untreated inguinal hernia never come with warning signs. Whether it’s the incarceration of an inguinal hernia or strangulation, the complications appear suddenly, which often needs the patient to be rushed to the hospital in an emergency.

    If you do not treat inguinal hernia in time, it may become challenging to manage the hernia, the inguinal hernia may become painful and the patient may even face difficulty to move or walk even a short distance. Pristyn Care doctors for inguinal hernia treatment never advise waiting with the inguinal hernia symptoms or delaying its treatment at any cost. Our expert inguinal hernia doctors always recommend the patients to undergo surgical treatment when the symptoms are at the initial stage because sooner or later, the patient has to undergo surgery to treat the inguinal hernia.

    Types of Inguinal Hernia:

    1. Direct inguinal hernia

    Direct inguinal hernias are the second most common type of hernia that appears in the groin. A direct inguinal hernia appears directly in the medial from the superficial epigastric blood vessels in the groin area. Similar to any other form of hernia, a direct hernia also involves a defect in a weak spot in the abdominal wall.

    2. Indirect inguinal hernia

    An indirect inguinal hernia is lateral in nature, which means they occur outside the epigastric vessels. Indirect inguinal hernias travel along the inguinla canal. These hernias often result from birth defects or premature births. But it can also occur in people of any other age group. Males are more susceptible to developing indirect inguinal hernias.

    3. Incarcerated inguinal hernia

    When an intestinal or abdominal tissue gets trapped in the hernia sac and cannot be pushed back, it causes incarcerated hernia. It is very difficult to make an incarcerated hernia return to its original compartment. An incarcerated hernia is a common emergency condition.

    4. Strangulated inguinal hernia

    A strangulated inguinal hernia is a life-threatening condition where the blood supply to the hernia tissues is cut off. When a hernia becomes strangulated, it causes the following signs:

    • blood in stools
    • fatigue
    • fever
    • acute pain in the abdomen
    • nausea and vomiting
    • constant fever

    Anyone who suspects hernia strangulation should seek medical help without delay.
