Most hernias can be manually pushed back into place. Some hernias that cannot be pushed back into place may pose a health risk and surgery may be recommended based on the specific condition and patient's preferences. Surgical hernia repair is an outpatient surgery that may use general or local anesthesia. Traditional surgery methods for hernia repair involve making an incision and placing the tissue or organ back in place beneath the muscle wall. The muscle tissue is repaired, sometimes with reinforcement from a mesh screen, and the incision is closed. Following your surgery, you may temporarily wear a corset to provide support. Your doctor will inform you of temporary activity restrictions.
Laparoscopic surgery may be an alternative surgery method for some people. Laparoscopic surgery uses a laparoscope to guide the surgery. A laparoscope is a thin tube with a miniature viewing instrument. The laparoscope is inserted through small incisions. Thin surgical instruments are inserted through the laparoscope during the surgery. Because laparoscopic surgery is less invasive and requires smaller incisions than traditional surgery methods, it is associated with less pain, less scarring, and quicker recovery.
