Herniorrhaphy (Open Surgery) Treatments we offer This is the oldest form of hernia surgery. In this procedure, the surgeon makes the cut right over the hernia on your skin to reach the hernia. The bulged tissue is positioned back to its correct location and the hernia sac is removed. The skin and the weakened muscle opening through which the hernia had bulged are closed with sutures. 2. Hernioplasty (Mesh Repair) Treatments we offer In Hernioplasty, the surgeon uses a mesh instead of closing the muscle opening with sutures. Hernia mesh, also known as surgical mesh, is a flat, sterile sheet of plastic or biological material that is used to cover the hernia (use of surgical mesh can decrease operative time and speed up recovery time). The surgeon stitches the mesh into the healthy tissues that surround the hernia. This enables the damaged tissue to use the mesh and support to regrow. 3. Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Treatments we offer This procedure is performed under general anaesthesia. It is done by making small incisions (1 to 4 in number) in the abdomen (upper and lower abdomen) using a laparoscope (a thin flexible tube with an attached camera that provides a live image of the inside of your body which is projected on the monitor). The surgeon slowly moves the herniated body part to its original position by placing a mesh patch over the weakened portion of the abdominal wall. The mesh is then secured with the help of staples or stitches. The incision is then closed with sutures (stitches). 4. Robotic Hernia Repair Treatments we offer The procedure is the same as laparoscopic hernia repair but here, electronic devices with high tech cameras, smaller incisions are used to aid the surgeon during the procedure. In robotic surgery, it is the robotic hands that perform the surgery, which is controlled by the surgeon sitting on the console and controlling them to perform the surgery/procedure. Robotic surgery in hernias is used for smaller hernias and to repair the abdominal wall. Want to know more about the treatment options at Practo Care Surgeries? Request a FREE consultation What is Hernia? When there is a weakening of your abdominal wall muscles, your intestines push through the abdominal wall, causing a bulge under the skin of your abdomen, near the groin or your navel causing a hernia. Hernias occur within the abdominal cavity (most common), your umbilicus (belly button), between the chest and stomach or the groin area. 1. What Are The Types of Hernia? Hernias are classified according to their location and their type. According to their location: Inguinal hernia (most common), Incisional Hernia (due to scar tissue), Femoral Hernia (more common in females), Umbilical Hernia (at or near the belly button), Hiatal Hernia (part of the stomach pushes through the diaphragm into the chest)According to their type: Reducible (hernia can be pushed back into the original opening), irreducible (hernia cannot be pushed back into the original opening) and strangulated (when an organ becomes trapped inside the hernia, blocking its blood supply) 2. What Causes a Hernia? A hernia develops as a result of muscle weakness and strain at birth or some other point in your life. Common causes include:Developmental defects in your abdominal wall that is present since birthWeakened scar tissue of a previous surgeryLifting heavy objectsAdvancing agePersistent coughObesityStrenuous exercisesPersistent straining at stoolsDiarrhoea (watery stools) Additionally, poor nutrition, smoking and overexertion can also result in the development of a hernia. 3. What Are The Common Symptoms of Hernia? In some cases, you may not experience any symptoms and may be identified during a routine health checkup. Usual symptoms include:A lump or a bulge in the area where the hernia has developed that may increase in size on standing or coughing or on bending down and the disappearance of the lump/bulge on lying downPain in and around the lumpPain during lifting objects/bendingDifficulty in swallowing, pain in abdomen and acid regurgitation (common in hiatal hernia) 4. How is Hernia Diagnosed? Your surgeon will take your medical history and perform a physical examination. During the examination, your doctor may feel the lump in the area and also ask you to cough, stand and sit to check for the change in the size of the bulge/lump. Your surgeon may also advise radiological investigations like Ultrasound of your abdomen (USG Abdomen), CT scan (Computed tomography scan), MRI scan (Magnetic resonance imaging scan) or an Endoscopy to arrive at the diagnosis. 5. How to Prepare For Hernia Surgery? Your doctor will ask about your medical history and any medications that you are currently taking. Keep your doctor informed in case you have an allergy to any drugs. You will need to stop medications such as blood thinners a few days before the surgery as these can cause excess bleeding during and after the surgery. 6. What is Postoperative Care After Hernia Surgery? a. At the hospital: You will spend 1-2 hours in the recovery room after your surgery. Your vitals (body temperature, pulse rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure) will be monitored closely. b. At home: To speed up post-surgery recovery:Take ample rest.You may experience pain for a few days after the hernia surgery. Take painkillers as advised by your doctor. Continue your medications.Avoid any strenuous physical activity. Continue with your normal diet. Try and eat bland, low-fat foods for a few days.Drink plenty of water and use a laxative or stool softener (after consulting your doctor) to avoid constipation. Take a shower only 24 to 48 hours after the surgery after checking with your doctor.Change your wound dressing regularly as per the doctor’s advice.

Hernia surgeries are usually performed by General surgeons or Laparoscopic surgeons. Can hernias be treated with medication? Hernias cannot be treated with medications. Medications can only help in relieving the symptoms for some time. Hernias have to be removed surgically. What are the advantages of laparoscopic surgery over open surgery? Laparoscopic surgery is better than conventional open surgery due to:Shorter time for healing and recovery (days vs week), hence you can resume work early.Cosmetically acceptable: Small multiple incisions (3 to 4) rather than one large cut in the abdomen.Fewer chances of postoperative complications.Reduced hospital stay and lower expenses. Are there any complications associated with hernia surgeries? Complications with hernia surgery are rare, however, a few include infection, bleeding from the site of incision, tingling and numbness in the affected area, pain and sometimes injuries to the nearby organs. When should you follow up with your doctor post-surgery? Your doctor will schedule a follow-up appointment 7-10 days after the surgery, to ensure complete recovery. During this visit, your doctor will remove any stitches and check for proper healing. When can I recover fully? The recovery period depends on the type of procedure. Most people return to their normal activities 2 to 3 weeks after the surgery. When should you seek help? Contact your doctor immediately if you have:High feverSevere pain or swelling at the surgical siteBleeding from the incision siteDiscoloured and foul-smelling fluids oozing out from the incision siteIf the incision becomes swollen or tender (delicate to touch) How much do hernia surgeries cost? The cost depends upon the type of surgery. Open Hernia surgeries cost between INR 30,000 and INR 60,000, while Laparoscopic surgeries cost INR 80,000. This may vary on a case to case basis depending upon the procedure, complexities associated with the disease, institution and geographical location.
