Simplifying Hernia Treatment With Laparoscopic Hernia Repair

Hernia is a common disorder occurring in both men and women. They are characterised by a hole or weakness in the abdominal wall through which the contents in the abdomen protrude outside, causing a bulge. They usually develop near the umbilicus, groin area or at the site of a prior abdominal surgery.  
The institute of gastroenterology at Billroth Hospital offers laparoscopic hernia repair in Chennai which is a widely popular surgical treatment procedure for management of hernia. The procedure helps in limiting the trauma usually associated with surgeries.

Causes of Hernia                                                                     

Hernia in the umbilicus region is mainly caused due to weak spot in the area that are present at the time of birth or due to an increased abdominal pressure that develops sue to a pregnancy or muscular strain.                                                                   
In men, hernia can develop near the blood vessels in the groin area. An increased muscle deterioration or strain can result in its development as well. Sites of prior surgeries can also provide weak spots which increase the risk of hernia development.                                                                  

The Need for Hernia Repair                                                                   

Hernia can obstruct the bowel movement, if the hernia sac obstructs the intestines. This can be fatal as there is an increased chance of peritonitis. Hernia is known to cause pain and discomfort while walking or standing for extended periods. Progressive enlargement of hernia can prove as a threat to health, necessitating its repair.


Laparoscopic Hernia Repair                                                                   

Laparoscopic hernia repair is an ideal management option as it eliminates the usual trauma and pain associated with conventional surgical procedures. The procedure, also called key hole surgery involves making small incisions in the abdominal area through which the laparoscope is inserted.                                                                   
The abdomen is filled with carbon dioxide, to inflate it which provides the surgeon with enough space to work inside. The hernia is viewed on a monitor attached to the equipment by the images transmitted through the laparoscope. The procedure is minimally invasive and is performed under general anaesthesia.
