Laparoscopic surgery uses a thin, telescope-like tool known as a laparoscope and is injected through a small slit at the umbilicus (belly button). Usually, this procedure is executed under general anaesthesia. Before the procedure general assessment of health is made through physical examination, evaluation of history, lab tests and ECG.
How is Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Performed?
The patient will not feel pain throughout this procedure. Here the laparoscope is connected to a tiny video camera, smaller than a dime, which projects an "internal view" of the patient's body onto the television screens in the operation room. The abdomen is bloated with a harmless gas (carbon dioxide) to allow the doctor to view the inner structures. The peritoneum (the inner lining of your abdomen) is cut to expose the feebleness in the abdominal wall. A mesh patch is attached to protect the weak area below the peritoneum. The peritoneum is then clipped or sutured closed. Following the procedure, the small abdominal slits are closed with a stitch or with surgical tape. Within a few months, the incisions are scarcely visible.
Benefits of Laparoscopic Hernia Repair
- Three tiny marks rather than one large abdominal incision
- Short hospital stay
- Lesser post-operative pain
- Lower hospital costs
- Shorter recovery time and earlier resumption to daily activities
What To Expect After The Surgery?
It is important to follow doctor's instructions after the surgery. Most of the patients feel better in just few days after the procedure. However, you might need to take rest for one week or two.
