The treatment of hernia, greatly depends on whether it is a reducible or an irreducible hernia and if there is a possibility of strangulation. A hernia is termed reducible if the protruding sac of tissue is in a position to be pushed back into into its normal place inside the abdomen. If the protruding sac of tissue cannot be pushed back, it is called irreducible, imprisoned, or incarcerated. Other names for hernia repair are herniorrhaphy and hernioplasty.

All acutely irreducible hernias demand an emergency treatment due to the risk of strangulation. Thankfully, most hernias can be repaired with a simple operation, and with minimal risks to the patient. Surgical hernia repairs are quick, easy and fairly comfortable.

Hernia surgery is done both as a minimally invasive (laparoscopic or keyhole) surgery repair or as a general surgery.

Types of Hernia Surgeries

Conventional Hernia Surgery: In this method, an incision is made over the site of the hernia. The protruding tissue is pushed back to the abdominal cavity, and the sac is removed. The surgeon repairs the hole or weakness in the abdominal wall by sewing strong surrounding muscles over the defect. This is the most common method of hernia repair.

Tension-free Mesh Technique: In this method, an incision is made at the site of the hernia, and a piece of mesh is inserted to cover the area of the abdominal wall defect, without sewing together the surrounding muscles. The mesh is safe and generally well-accepted by the body’s natural tissues. Recovery is quick, and the possibility of the hernia returning is small.

Laparoscopic Hernia RepairIn this method, a laparoscope is inserted into the abdominal cavity through a small incision. A laparoscope is a long metal tube with a fiber-optic light source and a telescopic eyepiece, which is connected to a TV monitor. This is used to view the hernia while the surgeon repairs the hernia through additional tubes that are inserted into the abdomen through separate incisions.

It is important to note that laparoscopic hernia removal is new, is still being evaluated, and it is not an option for every patient. It is up to you and your surgeon to decide whether it is appropriate for you.
