Inguinal Hernia Repair Surgery

Effectively Treating an Inguinal Hernia

A particularly uncomfortable physical abnormality can occur when small intestine tissue protrudes through a weak area of the abdomen near the groin. This is commonly known as an inguinal hernia. Other organs besides the intestine can be involved, and this condition can affect anyone at any age. The miVIP Surgery Clinics offer minimally invasive inguinal hernia repair that is effective at reversing hernia symptoms. Some of the more advanced symptoms include:

  • An obvious bulge in the groin area
  • Burning in the pubic region
  • A sense of heaviness or pressure at the site of the hernia

It is important to seek surgery to repair such hernias in order to prevent more pain and discomfort. Some inguinal hernias can even lead to tissue death when organs, especially the intestines, become pinched or twisted.

What to Expect During an Inguinal Hernia Repair Procedure

Minimally invasive inguinal hernia repair is the ideal method for treating a hernia and so minimizing potential risks associated with general surgery. Procedures that use small incisions allow faster hernia repair recovery when compared to similar open surgeries. The process is relatively simple:

  • The patient is given general anesthesia
  • A tiny cut is made on the abdomen near the hernia
  • After inserting a tube into the incision, the surgeon can use laparoscopic methods including a camera and minute surgical instruments to push the hernia tissue back in place
  • If it is required, the surgeon will reinforce the weak abdominal wall with mesh or sutures to prevent future inguinal hernias

Hernia Repair Recovery

Minimally invasive inguinal hernia repair allows many patients to return to work within days and able to perform normal activities within two to three weeks. However, any surgery involves certain risks. You should contact your surgeon immediately if you experience sharp pain at the surgical site, signs of infection, fever, or vomiting.

Cost of Inguinal Hernia Surgery

Hernia repair recovery is not the only process that is quick and easy with the help of miVIP Surgical Centers. Many health insurance plans may partially cover the cost, but there will likely be a balance. Our representatives are more than willing to help you determine how much you will owe and create a specialized payment plan.

Prognosis

Most patients who undergo inguinal hernia surgery experience no lasting or long term side effects. Less than three percent of patients have a relapse after undergoing minimally invasive hernia surgery. Since hernia repair recovery is so much faster compared to other options, it is much easier for patients to stick to the doctor’s suggested activity limitations during the brief convalescence period.
