Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery


Specialty of Colorectal surgery

Laparoscopic hernia surgery is a minimally-invasive form of surgery for hernias and an alternative to open surgery. Rather than making a large cut in the muscular wall, very small cuts are made in the patient's abdomen and a fine flexible telescope (a laparoscope) and other specialised instruments are inserted through these cuts. Usually a fine mesh is inserted to strengthen the muscle and prevent any tissue from pushing through the wall again. Laparoscopic surgery is commonly known as "keyhole surgery".
