A hernia is a protrusion of an organ or tissue through the muscle wall that normally contains it. The most common type of hernia is an inguinal hernia, in which a part of the intestine pushes through a weak spot in the abdominal wall into the groin. Hernias are classified as direct or indirect. Direct hernias protrude through a weakened area in muscle walls, while indirect hernias occur when abdominal organs push up against and weaken surrounding muscles.
The symptoms of a hernia are typically painless, but they can be more severe in some cases. They also may not be present at all if there is no pressure on the weakened area at any given time. Hernias are caused by a protrusion of an organ or other body part through the muscle that normally contains it. It can occur anywhere in the body but is most common in the stomach, intestines, and uterus.
A hernia is usually painless and asymptomatic until it becomes large enough to cause discomfort, such as when coughing or running. Hernias may also cause a loss of appetite or indigestion. Treatment for hernia can be performed by minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery or open surgery depending on the size and location of the hernia. Laparoscopic surgery has become increasingly popular over time due to its minimal risk, short recovery period, and lower cost of care than open surgery which is more invasive and requires a longer hospital stay post-surgery.
Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is performed on the abdomen to correct hernias. Laparoscopic hernia surgery is performed through a small incision in the abdominal wall. It is done using a laparoscope, which has an optical lens and light source. The surgeon can see inside the abdomen and perform the surgery with precision. The procedure can be done as an outpatient procedure or as an inpatient procedure depending on the size of hernia and other factors. Dr. Rajan Modi who has been practicing at Kapadia Multispecialty Hospital for many years now performs laparoscopic surgeries for all kinds of hernia.
