How are hernias repaired? What precautions should be taken after undergoing a hernia repair surgery?
The expression “hernia repair” refers to a surgical procedure performed to correct a hernia. Hernia repairs can be done with open or laparoscopic surgery.
You and your surgeon will discuss which type of surgery is indicated for you. The laparoscopic repair is less invasive compared to traditional procedures. Both procedures are done under general anesthesia. The recovery period after the laparoscopic surgery is shorter, and the patient may return home on the day of the surgery.
