Treatment

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a hernia go on its own?

expand icon

A hernia won’t heal on its own as it needs a surgical repair to relieve symptoms. It will resolve the problem such as pain, discomfort, and bulge. If the hernia does not cause problems, you need not have a surgical procedure soon.

What is a Strangulated Hernia?

expand icon

A strangulated hernia is a complex medical condition that can be life-threatening. The fatty tissue of the small intestine bulges through a weakened area of the abdominal muscles. The muscle then clamps down, cutting off the blood supply to the small intestine. It deters the blood supply to the bowel which leads to unpleasant symptoms. It is extremely painful and is a surgical emergency.

I have a bulge near the groin area, is it a hernia?

expand icon

A hernia doesn’t always cause a visible bulge in the groin but an inguinal hernia does. With time, a hernia may become an inguinal hernia, and abdominal organs may press against the weakened soft tissues to form a visible bulge.

Why does it pain when I push the Hernia?

expand icon

Some hernias may seem hidden when they are pushed back in. Also, hernias tend to grow in size as the abdominal muscle wall gets weaker & large tissue bulges through. If it pains when you push your hernia back into your belly, the condition is likely to be incarcerated.

What should you not do after hernia surgery?

expand icon

After hernia repair surgery, you should not do anything that can exert you physically and slow down the healing process. 

Thus, avoid doing the following things after a hernia operation:

  • Lifting any heavy objects or indulge in heavy-weight lifting
  • Driving until full recovery
  • Itching around the incision site
  • Bathing before the doctor advises or allows after the surgery

In case, you indulge in any of these things or experience itching, pain, and discomfort around the sutures, immediately contact your doctor.

How much time does it take for the hernia mesh surgery to heal?

expand icon

Synthetic mesh is used in the laparoscopic procedure to strengthen the operated area. Though the patient can return home on the same day, complete healing after the hernia mesh surgery can take around 3-4 weeks. 

What is the fastest way to recover from a hernia operation?

expand icon

To ensure a speedy recovery after undergoing a hernia repair operation, do the following things:

Why should you not delay your hernia repair surgery?

A hernia does not disappear or repair on its own and needs proper surgical treatment to fix it once and for all. Hernia repair should not be delayed or avoided as it can cause various other health problems as well.

Delaying the treatment for hernia can result in the following complications:

When left unattended for a long time, a hernia can keep on growing bigger. As it grows in size, the symptoms tend to get severe too. Also, smaller hernias are easier to treat than bigger complicated ones. 

A hernia can get trapped or stuck outside the abdominal wall, called incarceration. This can often cause stopping of blood flow to the hernia and block the bowel, leading to a strangulated hernia. In case of strangulation, urgent surgery is required to prevent any danger to the patient’s life.

What is the estimated cost of hernia repair surgery in Gwalior?

The exact cost of a hernia surgery depends on the following basic factors:

  • The severity of the patient’s condition
  • Type of hernia to be repaired
  • Type of hernia repair technique chosen (open or laparoscopic surgery)
  • Expenses of diagnostic tests
  • Hospital charges
  • Surgeon’s fees
  • Surgery cost covered under the insurance policy

Based on these, the estimated cost of laparoscopic hernia surgery in Gwalior at Pristyn Care can be around Rs. 70,000-90,000. We accept all kinds of insurances and also offer the benefit of No Cost EMI to the patient so that there is no financial burden for the patient.

Preparation before hernia surgery

  • Preparation before hernia surgery includes medical evaluation, chest x-ray, and certain specific tests depending on your overall health and medical conditions.
  • After consultation with your doctor, discussing the benefits and possible complications of the surgery, you will need to give written consent for the surgery.
  • 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 Gwalior ranges between Rs. 30,000 to 60,000. The average cost of laparoscopic surgery for a hernia in Gwalior 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 Gwalior, 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.
