Hernia Surgery


A hernia is a muscle defect through which the contents that normally lie behind that muscle may protrude. Typically a defect in the muscle occurs at points of natural weakness such as the groin/inguinal area, the umbilicus, previous abdominal wall incisions

The hernia itself can cause pain and discomfort. In extreme circumstances the hernia itself may become stuck

Laparoscopic Hernia Repair

The hernia may be repaired with keyhole surgery. Such procedures are day case operations and result in recovery within a few weeks

Open hernia repair

Depending upon particular circumstances, the hernia may repaired by making a cut over the hernia itself. Again, these procedures are usually as a day case and recovery occurs over a couple of weeks

Incisional Hernia Repair

Hernia associated with a previous operation can vary in complexity. Frequently scans may be required to determine the muscle defect itself and plan for the operation. Hospital stay and recovery for these procedures vary according to the extent of the incisional hernia defect

Abdominal Wall Reconstruction

Abdominal wall reconstruction procedures may be required for complex abdominal wall hernia. As for incisional hernia, detailed preoperative planning and management is usually required
