What is the treatment of inguinal hernia?

Generally, inguinal hernia are repaired by surgery. Conservative approach can be used in unfit patients. These patients can wear abdominal wall TRUSS to keep the hernia in side.

What are the different types of surgery available?

Hernia can be repaired by open or by key-hole (laparoscopic) approach. Both the approaches have advantages and disadvantages. You will be able to discuss with your surgeon at the time of consultation.


What happens during surgery?

Inguinal hernia repair is usually carried out under general anaesthesia. Incisions made will vary according to the type of surgery. Aim of the operation will be to identify the hernia defect and push it back in to the abdomen then a mesh repair will be carried out to reinforce the abdominal wall. The wound is usually closed with absorbable sutures.


What is the after care?

You will be encouraged to be mobile as much as possible. We advise our patients to refrain from lifting heavy weights for four weeks and avoid driving till they are able to put an emergency stop. Our patients will be able to go home on the same day depending on the timing of the surgery.


Do I need to take time off from work following surgery?

It depends on the type of work involved, however generally you will need two weeks off from work.


What are the risks from surgery?

Minor side effects and complications common but serious side effects are very rare. There are risks of wound infection, bruising, bleeding from the wound rarely chronic pain and recurrence of hernia (2%)
