Single-side inguinal hernia repair, also called,unilateral inguinal hernia repair is the condition of having an inguinal hernia on the only one side of the groin. Single-side inguinal hernia repair can be performed in two different ways either as alaparoscopic inguinal hernia repair or an open inguinal hernia operation. Single-side inguinal hernia repair belongs to the easiest cases for doctors. In comparison to a bilateral inguinal hernia repair, unilateral inguinal hernia repair is a relatively easier procedure, but it needs a different kind of management.
Patients who are suffering from pain and discomfort because of their inguinal hernia and whose hernia is not possible to be massaged back into the abdomen can be the candidates for single-side inguinal hernia repair. However, many patients with an inguinal hernia do not require such treatment since their hernias disappear with time or are possible to be dealt with in the doctor's office.
