What Is Hernia Removal Surgery?

Hernia removal surgery is a procedure during which a surgeon removes the hernia by making a few incisions in the abdomen. A hernia occurs when an internal organ bulges or protrudes through the weak muscle.

A hernia is most common in certain parts of the body such as the abdomen, groin, belly button, or upper thigh area. It may also be seen where you have had an incision from previous surgery.

Surgery

A 3D mesh hernia surgery is the most advanced treatment option available for a hernia repair in Kolkata. In a normal mesh repair, synthetic mesh is used to cover the opening.

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.

  • 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.

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 Kolkata ranges between Rs. 30,000 to 60,000. The average cost of laparoscopic surgery for a hernia in Kolkata 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 Kolkata, 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.
