A hernia occurs when an organ or tissue protrudes through the muscle wall and enters the abdominal cavity. Once the organ enters the abdominal cavity, it causes a bulge in the region and makes it difficult to perform even regular activities. The condition is further divided into the inguinal hernia, umbilical hernia, incisional hernia, femoral hernia, hiatal hernia, etc.
If left untreated, hernias can cause life-threatening complications. Therefore, hernia repair surgery is required. The repair can be done using the open or laparoscopic technique. If you have been diagnosed with any type of hernia, contact Pristyn Care and have a detailed discussion with the best hernia surgeons in Kottayam. Our hernia specialists will diagnose the condition and suggest the most suitable treatment method accordingly.

Usually, a hernia can be identified through a physical examination. The healthcare provider will ask you to stand, sit, and lie down to check the visible swelling around the herniated organ. If a hernia can be felt clearly in these positions, the doctor will recommend other tests for an accurate diagnosis-
Other than these, an MRI scan or CT scan may also be used to identify whether or not the hernia can lead to complications and to narrow down the most suitable technique for surgical treatment.
Surgery is the only effective way to treat a hernia. At Pristyn Care, we use both types of surgery- hernioplasty and herniorrhaphy. The hernia is repaired with or without the help of the hernia mesh. There are two different techniques used to carry out both types of hernia repair surgeries.
Open Hernia Repair Surgery
In open hernioplasty or herniorrhaphy, a large incision is used to access the internal organs. The surgeon then places the herniated organ into the original position. If necessary, a hernia mesh is placed over and below the hole in the muscle wall to prevent the organ from entering the abdominal cavity again. After the repair, the incision is closed with the help of stitches or staples and left to heal over time.
Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Surgery
It is a modern, minimally invasive technique used for hernia repair. The surgery involves making 2-3 keyhole-sized incisions in the abdominal area. All the surgical instruments and the laparoscope are inserted into the body through these incisions. The abdomen is then inflated with gas and ample space is created to carry out the procedure safely.
The hernia is repaired by pushing the organ back to its original location. If additional support or reinforcement is needed to keep the organ in its place, a hernia mesh will be placed over the hole. The mesh is stitched with healthy muscle tissue to prevent displacement of the mesh.
After the repair is done, the abdomen is deflated and the incisions are closed with stitches, staples, or surgical glue.
Both techniques are safe and effective in treating hernias. While open surgery usually requires hospitalization, laparoscopic hernia surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. To learn more about the treatment procedures, you can schedule an appointment with our hernia doctors and discuss everything with them.

"Though a common disease, hernia is often ignored initially. Mostly because its not always severly painful. At times, the pain reduces after sometime and people mistake it for healing. The truth is, hernia never resolves without a surgical intervention. And delaying the surgery only worsens the conditions and risks severe pain, internal bleeding, stangulation and organ death. This, then intensifies the treatment and makes the surgery complicated. So I'll suggest, you note for any bodily change or pain and seek immediate diagnosis if you fear hernia. Once detected, plan a surgery as soon as possible. Hernia treatment is one of the most common and safe procedures. Generally, it takes less than 30 minutes and you can go home the same day."
