Lap Hernia Surgery
Hernia repairs are one of the most common abdominal surgeries. Surgery happens to be the only course of treatment for hernias. Hernia repair basically refers to the surgical operation of the hernias (protrusion of an organ through a weakened wall of a muscle).
Before laparoscopic surgeries came into existence, hernia repairs were complex procedures involving large skin incisions, long suture lines, long recovery periods as a result of which the patient had to incur a lot of pain. However, withminimally invasive surgery now being well established, laparoscopic hernia repairs are much less cumbersome. They involve tiny incisions, short recovery periods and minimal pain.
Apart from the cosmetic results being excellent in laparoscopic hernia repairs, two major advantages over traditional open surgery are that the risk of infection is almost negligible in laparoscopic surgery and as the post-operative recovery period is short, the cost incurred by the patients is dramatically lesser.
