Hernia is a condition in which an organ pushes through a weak area of the muscle. This causes severe pain and serious health problems.
Hernias usually occur either because there is a natural weakness in the abdominal or due to excessive pressure in the abdominal wall such as a pressure due to lift too much weight, gain a lot of overweight, constantly coughing, or difficulties with urination. Almost all types of hernias are located near the groin. Hernias occur both in men and women.
Symptoms of Hernia
- A noticeable bulge in the groin or abdomen
- Feel pain when you lift something
- A feeling of dull pain
- A vague feeling of being full
- Nausea and constipation
Laparoscopic Surgery uses a very thin instrument, like a telescope called laparoscope that is inserted through a small incision in the navel area (belly button). Typically, this procedure is done under general anesthesia. This requires an assessment of your overall health, including history and physical examination, possibly including urinalysis and ECG.
You will not feel pain during surgery. The laparoscope is connected to a tiny video camera, which projects an inside view of the patient’s body in ??television screens in the operating room. To view the internal structures the first step is to inflate the abdomen with a harmless gas (carbon dioxide). The peritoneum (the lining of your abdomen) is cut to expose the weaknesses of the abdominal wall. A mesh patch is tied to secure the weak zone beneath the peritoneum. The peritoneum with staples or suture is then closed. After the procedure, small abdominal incisions with a stitch or with surgical tape close. In a few months, the incision will barely be visible.
- Three tiny scars instead of a large abdominal incision
- very short stay in the hospital
- It reduces postoperative pain
- Under hospital costs
- Quick return to work
- Shorter recovery time
