Open Inguinal Hernia Repair-Unilateral Treatment in India

starting from

For open hernia repair surgery, a single long incision is made in the groin. If the hernia is bulging out of the abdominal wall (a direct hernia), the bulge is pushed back into place. If the hernia is going down the inguinal canal (indirect), the hernia sac is either pushed back or tied off and removed.

How It Works

Open surgery is different from laparoscopic surgery for hernia repair in the following ways:

  • An open surgery requires one larger incision instead of several small incisions.
  • If hernias are on both sides, a second incision will be needed to fix the other hernia. Laparoscopic surgery allows the surgeon to repair both hernias without making more incisions.
  • Open hernia repair can be done under general, spinal, or local anesthesia. Laparoscopic repair requires general anesthesia.
