    Laparoscopic Hernia Repair

    Laparoscopic Hernia Treatment, Repair & Surgery in Bangalore

    A hernia develops when an organ pushes through a weakness or flaw in the tissue or muscle holding it in place. The belly button, upper thigh, and groin regions of the abdomen are popular sites for hernias to develop.

    Laparoscopic hernia repair surgery is a cutting-edge method for treating hernia patients without any noticeable side effects. The laparoscope is a little tube-like device with light & camera at its tip. Small incisions (two to four) are made at the abdomen wall, through which the laparoscope & surgical tools are inserted to perform this surgery. It is a minimally invasive procedure which is preferred today by most medical surgeons for its excellent negligible risks and complications.

    Types of Hernia conditions addressed with laparoscopic Hernia Surgery

    Laparoscopic hernia surgery can be used to treat most hernias, including:

    • Femoral Hernia
    • Umbilical Hernia
    • Inguinal Hernia
    • Incisional Hernia
    • Hiatal Hernia
    • Diaphragmatic Hernia

    What happens before the procedure?

    • Depending on your age and health, preoperative preparation may involve blood testing, a medical examination, an X-ray, and an EKG.
    • You will be required to sign a written permission form before surgery after your surgeon has discussed the possible risks and advantages of the procedure with you.
    • It is advised that you take a shower the evening before or the morning of the procedure.
    • After speaking with your surgeon, an enema or similar preparation may be administered if you are having trouble moving your bowels.
    • You should avoid eating or drinking anything after midnight before the procedure if your surgeon has specifically instructed you to do so.
    • Prior to surgery, it is necessary to temporarily cease taking medications such as painkillers, blood thinners, anti-inflammatory drugs, and vitamin E for a few days to a week.
    • The doctor might prescribe you some medications which are necessary to be taken before the surgery.
    • Plan to have someone drive you home following the procedure. Arrange for assistance. Following surgery, you’ll want to rest, so you might want more assistance at home.

    What is the procedure for Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery?

    In almost all cases, general anaesthesia will be given to the patient before laparoscopic hernia surgery. During general surgery of the pelvic area, a long, thin telescope called a laparoscope is often utilized. The patient’s abdomen is inflated by the laparoscopic surgeon using carbon dioxide gas. The gas provides the surgeon with enough room to work and a clear view of the organs. The laparoscope is inserted through a tiny incision made by the doctor in the lower abdomen. The camera on it enables the surgeon to visualize the hernia and nearby organs. The video feed also enables them to precisely eliminate the flaw without harming any nearby cells. While carrying out this procedure, surgeons must use extreme caution to avoid damaging any blood vessels. After the hernia sac has been removed, the defect is covered with prosthetic mesh. Finally, stitches are used to seal the wound; these stitches eventually fall out. The entire surgical procedure might take around 1-2 hours.

    Postoperative care

    For at least a week after returning home, if not longer, you’ll experience weakness and exhaustion. This will get resolved eventually. It’s possible for your right shoulder or back to feel pain like it’s been twisted. This is a result of the gas that was injected into your abdomen during the procedure; it will go away in two to three days. For almost a week after the procedure, your stomach may feel swollen, and you might not be able to zip your clothes. The abdominal gas will be absorbed, and this will pass. The most painful area will be the incision at the abdominal button. Since most hernia surgeries are conducted as outpatient procedures, you will likely leave the hospital on the same day as the procedure.

    Following are the instructions that you need to take care of:

    • Following surgery, you might want to limit your diet to liquids and avoid large meals.
    • You shouldn’t go behind the wheel until you’ve finished taking your painkillers.
    • During your first week at home, avoid doing sports and working out.
    • Use your painkillers as directed.
    • If you develop a fever that lasts longer than a week, call your doctor.
    • After the initial dressing change, if any of the wounds begin to leak sufficiently to soak a piece of gauze, go see your doctor very once.

    Risks & Complications of Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery

    Patients might have the following complications.

    • The laparoscope might infect the adjacent tissues of the abdominal cavity if it is not handled appropriately.
    • Blood clots can sometimes develop in people who have been under general anaesthesia for a long time.
    • In some cases, patients may experience long-term chronic pain following surgery. It can be the result of injury to any nearby cells or old age, signalling that the body needs extra time to heal.
    • The hernia might recur at any time. However, following laparoscopic surgery, the odds are reduced by half.

    Who is a candidate for Laparoscopic Hernia repair?

    A doctor may advise surgery if the hernia is determined to be serious in the patient. Patients who exhibit the following symptoms may require surgery:

    • Incarceration occurs when abdominal tissues, such as intestinal tissues, enclose the abdominal wall. The specialists will advise surgery for incarceration since, if left untreated, it can result in strangulation. Cells in the stomach or intestines may suffer some kind of irreversible injury.
    • If the hernia develops a red, purple, or dark colour, it may cause persistent fever, nausea, and excruciating abdominal discomfort.
    • Persistent soreness in the injured location.
    • The size of the hernia is expanding.
