What is 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.

Common Diagnostic Tests Performed Before Hernia Surgery

Before hernia surgery is suggested to the patient, the surgeon must thoroughly diagnose the patient’s body. For that, the following tests are recommended- 

  • Abdominal ultrasound- The ultrasound test is done to get images of the abdomen and pelvic organs. This helps to find the cause of pain. 
  • CT Scan- The doctor may order a CT scan to find if the organ is inflamed or swollen. 
  • MRI Scan- This test is recommended to detect if the organ or tissues are strangulated or obstructed. 
  • X-ray is a test that creates images of the abdomen and all the organs to determine the safest way to access the herniated organ. 
  • Endoscopy- This test provides clear images of the internal organs that help the surgeon identify the proper technique for surgery.

Each of the above-mentioned tests has a clear significance. The results of these tests help to determine the right path for hernia treatment.

Steps Involved in Hernia Surgery

At Pristyn Care, we provide treatment through advanced laparoscopic hernia surgery, Which is a minimally invasive technique. The steps involved in the treatment are explained below- 

  • The patient is given anesthesia (usually general anesthesia) to numb the body. 
  • Next, 2 or 3 incisions are made across the abdomen or groin region, based on the location and type of the hernia. 
  • The abdomen is then inflated using gas to make ample space to carry out the procedure without harming the surrounding tissues. 
  • All surgical instruments and the laparoscope are inserted into the abdomen. The laparoscope provides clear images of the internal organs on a TV screen. 
  • The surgeon pushes the protruding organ back into its original position. 
  • If required, a hernia mesh is used to strengthen the muscle wall. It is sewed over the healthy tissues to act as reinforcement and to prevent the internal organs from protruding from the muscle wall again. 
  • If hernia mesh is not required, the healthy tissues are stitched together to close the muscle opening. 
  • The incisions are closed with the help of staples or surgical glue if necessary. Otherwise, they are left open to heal on their own and covered with bandages to prevent infection and contamination.

The laparoscopic hernia operation takes around 1-2 hours, and the patient is most likely to be discharged on the same day. To know more about hernia surgery, contact our hernia specialist in Nagpur.

In Our Doctor's Word

What-Dr. Abdul Mohammed-Say-About-Hernia-Treatment

Dr. Abdul Mohammed

MBBS, DNB - General Surgery

15 Years Experience

"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."

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.

  • 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 Nagpur, 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.
