Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Bangalore
Laparoscopic Stomach Hernia repair is similar to other laparoscopic procedures. First the surgeon makes a cut over the area of the hernia. A thin, lighted instrument called a laparoscope is inserted through the incision. The instruments to repair the hernia are inserted through other small incisions in the lower abdomen. Mesh is then placed over the defect to reinforce the abdominal wall.
Both Women and men can get a hernia. Some hernias it may be present at birth, while others develop over time. A hernia does not get better over time and it will not go away by itself. Hernias are most commonly occurring in the groin ('inguinal hernias'), around the belly button ('umbilical hernias'), and near the site of a previous surgical operation ('incisional hernias').
Approximately 600,000 hernia repair operations are performed annually in India. Many are performed by the conventional "open" method. Some hernia repairs are performed laparoscopically using a small telescope called laparoscope.
During laparoscopic surgery, we make a small half inch cut in the skin at the belly button. Then a thin cannula (tube) is introduced in between the muscle fibers without cutting any of the muscle. Through the tube, the laparoscope is inserted into the patient's body. It is equipped with a tiny camera and light source that allows it to send images through a fiber-optic cord to a television monitor. The television monitor shows a high resolution magnified image. Watching the monitor, the surgeon can perform the procedure. While looking inside the patient, further 2 half inch diameter tubes are put in. This way, the already weak muscles are not disturbed and the net is placed through the ½ inch holes that are away from the hernia. Thus there is minimal disturbance to the normal body and as a result the pain is minimal and very little rest is required. There are more and more reports showing the success of this technique in reducing post operative pain, rest and recurrence rates.
Preparation for Surgery
Most hernia operations are performed on an outpatient basis that is the patient will go home on the same day that the operation is performed.
You should shower the night before or the morning of the operation.
You should refrain from eating or drinking after midnight on the night before your operation.
Some preoperative testing may be required depending on your medical condition and the type of anesthesia needed for your operation.
If you have difficulties moving your bowels, an enema or similar preparation should be used after consulting with your surgeon.
If you take medication on a daily basis, discuss this with your surgeon.
Laparoscopic hernia is an efficient technique that compares favorably to current open surgical techniques. The patients are relatively pain free and can return to work and normal activities much quicker than open hernia repairs.
