About Inguinal Hernia Repair
A laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair is an operation that pushes the bulge back into its correct place and simultaneously strengthens the abdominal wall. The operation is important because an inguinal hernia is a potentially dangerous medical condition.
Laparoscopic, or keyhole surgery, is a minimally invasive method where numerous small incisions are made, allowing the surgeon to use a variety of instruments.
When you recover from your inguinal hernia repair, you should be able to go home the same day or the day after your surgery. It is vital that you follow the our instructions on how to look after yourself following surgery. This includes eating a healthy diet to avoid constipation, looking after your wound and not straining yourself too soon after your procedure.
