Inguinal Hernia Repair

A inguinal hernia appears as a lump in the groin area when the tissue lining the abdominal cavity protrudes through a weakened area of the abdominal wall. The hernia can cause discomfort or even pain. It can become dangerous if the intestinal content gets trapped and not reducible. The only way to stop the hernia getting worse is to repair the tissue defect surgically.

The hernia can be repaired by conventional surgery or laparoscopic surgery. The tissue defect is strengthened with a nylon mesh. The Total ExtraPeritoneal (TEP) laparoscopic technique is a minimally invasive procedure which is safe, leaves minimal scarring and causes minimal pain.
