Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery
||Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery
A hernia is a bulge in the inguinal region or abdominal wall. This bulge occurs due to weakness in the abdominal wall or inguinal canal. An inguinal hernia is a bulge in the groin and is more common in men. The only effective treatment for a hernia is surgery. Laparoscopic surgery is the best method for inguinal hernia surgery. Many patients develop weakness of the abdominal wall due to previous surgery, common after emergency surgery, infected cases, or obese individuals. These weaknesses, later on, can lead to incisional hernias. Laparoscopic surgery is an effective method for the treatment of incisional hernias. Previously open surgeries were done which lead to bigger incisions, bigger scars, and more pain, but laparoscopic surgery can now be performed with better outcomes.
