What Are Types of Hernia Mesh Surgery?

Q:
What are types of hernia mesh surgery?

A:
There are two types of surgery to implant hernia mesh:

  • Laparoscopic repair: This is minimally invasive surgery. The surgeon makes several small incisions. He then inserts surgical tools through the openings to implant and secure the mesh. This procedure allows for a shorter healing time and less blood loss. But it is more challenging to perform and costs more.
  • Open Repair – Surgeons use this procedure with or without surgical mesh. Most open hernia repairs use general anesthesia. But surgeons may instead use spinal or local anesthesia accompanied by sedation. The surgeon makes an incision near the hernia to repair the weak muscle area.
