Hernia Repair

Hernia is a condition in which a fat tissue or organ forces out through an area of weakened muscles. This weak spot is known as fascia. Types of hernia include inguinal hernia, hiatal hernia, incisional hernia, femoral hernia, umbilical hernia etc.

Surgical correction of this condition is attained by this method. Some of the methods employed for correction include herniotomy, herniorrhaphy, hernioplasty etc. The process of the removal of hernia sac is termed as herniotomy. Hernioplasty is the procedure in which posterior inguinal canal is repaired along with herniotomy. In contrast to hernioplasty, the herniorrhaphy doesn't involve use of any heterogeneous or autogenous material for reinforcement.

Almost all the hernia repair surgeries involve post-operative pain. The discomfort may linger for a longer period of time. If hernia is relatively small and doesn't involve any pain, treatments other than surgery may be used. The 2 types of hernia repair are described below:
