Hernia & Hydrocoel
What is Hernia Surgery ?
Hernia Surgery is the technique to repair the weakening muscular wall that has a hole in it and push the herniated organ back into its original location. There are two ways to carry out the treatment. Herniorrhaphy is the name of the procedure used when the wall is repaired without any support. Hernioplasty is the medical term for the operation when a mesh is utilised to strengthen and reinforce the muscle wall as it heals.

Outline of Hernia Surgery: Diagnosis
The doctor will inspect the bulging area physically before deciding on therapy. The patient might be requested to stand, strain, or cough in order to make an appropriate diagnosis. An abdominal ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI are examples of imaging tests that the doctor might do in order to provide a more thorough diagnosis and determine the safest method of repair.
The doctor will choose the best course of action and carry out the treatment based on the test results.
The steps of the treatment are as follows:
- In order to ensure that the patient is completely pain- and discomfort-free throughout the procedure, general anaesthesia is administered to the patient.
- Depending upon the severity of the given condition, small incisions are created around the affected area, which assists the surgeon to push back the hernia inside.
- The surgeon inserts a laparoscope—a medical tool with an integrated camera that allows them to see inside the body—through one of the incisions.
- Via the incision, a surgical mesh is placed, supporting the injured tissue surrounding the hernia as it heals.
The surgeon utilises additional medical devices including tacks, sutures, and surgical glue to keep the surgical mesh in place after covering the perforation with it.
- The little incisions are then stitched or sutured shut, and these materials eventually fall out on their own.
Frequently Asked Questions
No, not all hernia repair procedures involve the use of hernia mesh. The abdominal wall perforation can frequently be repaired without the need for reinforcement or support. As a result, hernia mesh is not always required.
Anesthesia options for hernia surgery include local, spinal, and general. In order to find out if you are allergic to any of the substances used in general anaesthesia, the anaesthetist will ask you a few questions. If so, local or spinal anaesthetic will be applied.
You have a maximum of two weeks to return to work or school. The recuperation from open surgery may take longer, so the doctor may advise waiting at least 2 weeks before returning to work or school. A laparoscopic repair will result in a quicker recovery. You can therefore return to work or school after the first week.
