Hernia occurs when an organ or tissue exits through the wall of the cavity in which it originally stays.  When the hernia grows larger and causes pain it can be treated only with surgery. Laparoscopy surgery is an effective surgical practice to fix a hernia. This surgery is usually done to treat; bilateral inguinal hernias, recurrent hernia, and ventral hernias. This surgery provides speedy recovery and hence has become a preferable alternative to athletics in case of hernia.

The Procedure of Inguinal Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic hernia repair is very similar to other laparoscopic procedures. The procedure is done under general anesthesia and a small cut is made in or just below the navel. The abdomen is overblown with air so that the surgeon can observe the abdominal organs. A thin laparoscope is inserted through the cut. The instruments to repair the hernia are inserted through other small cuts in the lower abdomen. Mesh is then placed over the defect to support the abdominal wall.

Laparoscopic hernia surgery is different from open surgery in the following ways:

  • Laparoscopic surgery involves several small incisions instead of a single larger cut.
  • If there are hernias on both sides, both hernias can be treated at the same time without any need for a second large incision.
  • Laparoscopic surgery permits your surgeon to observe both groin areas and all sites of hernias for defects. And the mesh can also be placed over all possible weaker areas preventing a hernia from recurrence. 
  • Laparoscopic repair is done under general anesthetic, whereas open hernia repair can be done under general, spinal, or local anesthesia.

Advantages of Inguinal Laparoscopic Surgery:

  • Some people may choose a laparoscopic hernia repair because it causes less pain and recovery time is shorter which enable them to resume their work quickly.
  • Fixing of a recurrent hernia often is easier using laparoscopic techniques than using open surgery.
  • It is possible to examine for and repair a second hernia on the opposite side at the time of the procedure.
  • Because smaller incisions are used, laparoscopy may be more attractive for aesthetic reasons

Patients who undergo laparoscopic surgery usually get a shorter recovery time. However, laparoscopic surgery may not be the best option if the hernia is very large or the patient has had pelvic surgery.
