Inguinal hernia repair surgery is the procedure to push the bulging organ back inside and repair the perforated abdominal wall in the groin. Surgery is the only solution for an inguinal hernia as it doesn’t resolve on its own. Usually, watchful waiting is recommended for patients in the earlier stage. Elective surgery is usually offered to the patients considering the impact an inguinal hernia is having on the patient’s regular life and its severity. Emergency surgery is performed for patients who develop life-threatening complications, such as incarceration or strangulation.
