Inguinal Hernia Repair Candidates

This surgery is recommended for females and males who have inguinal hernia repair failure symptoms and were diagnosed with any type of inguinal hernia.

Am I Suitable for Inguinal Hernia Repair?

If you do not have any serious symptoms or if you are only diagnosed with a minimal symptomatic hernia, it is recommended that you avoid surgery because of side effects that may occur after inguinal hernia surgery.

Inguinal hernia repair is also not recommended for patients with previous abdominal or prostate surgery or other serious medical conditions. Men who are more than 50 years old are most confronted with this situation.

Preparing for Inguinal Hernia Repair

If after a thorough examination, the surgeon determines that inguinal hernia repair is right for you, you should know:

• You may need further medical evaluations
• You need to be informed fully and clearly over the risks and complications of this type of surgery
• Before the operation, you should stop any medication that involves blood thinners such as aspirin. You should avoid intaking anti-inflammatories, vitamin E or some herbal supplements
• You will be asked to quit smoking before and after the surgery to prevent its negative effect in the healing process
• Immediately after the surgery, you may need extra help to drive you home or for your daily activities

How is Inguinal Hernia Repair Performed?

If left untreated, this disease can cause serious complications, and if you have any symptoms, it is recommended that you go for a check-up as soon as possible.

There are two types of surgical inguinal hernia treatments: 

The laparoscopic method or Laparoscopic treatment: 


The laparoscopic method or Laparoscopic treatment is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia with a tool named laparoscope and a special camera that allows the surgeon to visualize the hernia and surrounding tissue on a video screen. The surgeon will perform the operation with the help of cannulas inserted through three tiny incisions. A small piece of surgical mesh will be placed to reinforce the abdominal wall over the hole produced by hernia. When structures are placed in their proper locations, your surgeon will cover the opening with sutures, staples, or adhesive glue. This is a less invasive procedure, and it has a shorter recovery period than open surgery, although the risk of hernia recurrence may be greater with laparoscopic repair.


Inguinal Hernia Surgery:
For inguinal hernia repair surgery, the doctor will perform a deeper incision by suturing the hole in the stomach and tighten the abdominal muscles. Open hernia repair can be done under general, spinal, or local anesthesia, while Laparoscopic repair requires general anesthesia. This type of procedure requires longer recovery time and involves the risk of not being able to move normally for a period of up to six weeks.
