Apollo Hospitals has launched an Institute of Hernia Surgery and Abdominal Wall Reconstruction at Chennai which is a comprehensive specialty centre for hernia care. The Institute of Hernia Surgery and Abdominal Wall Reconstruction at Chennai was inaugurated by Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Thiru. MA. Subramaniam.

Speaking about the advancement in Hernia treatment, Dr. Premkumar Balachandran, Senior Consultant Minimal Access, Bariatric and Robotic Surgeon, Apollo Hospitals, said, “The management of hernia has now undergone a paradigm shift. The advent of minimal access or laparoscopic surgery has been a boon to both the surgeon and the patient. The nomenclature of ventral hernia management is now referred to as “abdominal wall reconstruction”. Complex reconstructions, abdominal wall component separation surgeries, regular groin and ventral hernia can now be treated with minimal morbidity by the laparoscopic and robotic techniques.”
