  • About Hernia

    A hernia occurs when an internal organ bulges or protrudes through the weak muscle around it. Hernias are most common in certain parts of the body such as abdomen, groin, belly button or upper thigh area. They may also be seen where you have had an incision from previous surgery.

    Treatment

    Diagnosis

    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-

    • Ultrasound to get a clear image of the hernia and the muscles the internal organ is protruding.
    • An X-ray may be used to determine if there are any obstructions in the hernia.

    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.

    Procedure

    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 in Kozhikode and discuss everything with them.

    If left untreated, a hernia can lead to complications such as blockage in the digestive tract, incarceration of the hernia sac, chronic pain, etc. Consulting an experienced doctor allows for early intervention and proper management to prevent complications and minimize their impact on health. In addition, a doctor can create a personalized treatment plan based on the person's health, the type of hernia, and the severity of symptoms. This may include lifestyle changes, hernia truss, or surgical intervention. Therefore, consult a qualified and experienced hernia surgeon as early as possible for appropriate disease management.

    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 is 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

    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 seeking painless hernia treatment in Kozhikode, 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.

    If you want to get rid of your hernia in the safest way, laparoscopic repair is the best option.
