Laparoscopic hernia surgery




Laparoscopic hernia surgery

Mini-invasive method (the so-called bloodless or laparoscopic method). In recent years, due to technological advancements, the bloodless method is developing very rapidly. Using a small camera and instruments the surgeon reaches hernia defect through tiny openings in the abdomen and place a mesh, where the hernia defect is situated. In this way the law of Pascal takes place. The essence is that the mesh is pressed by the abdominal pressure and stays in the desired position.

The advantages of the laparoscopic technique are:

Faster recovery due to the smaller tissue trauma in the area of the hernia.  Smaller scars on the abdomen.

The surgeon can see the entire abdominal cavity and spot early asymptomatic diseases and problems.

The surgeon can find other hernias, that cannot be discovered from the outside.

It gives the opportunity for other problems to be treated at the same time.

There are significantly less complications in the place of the surgery, than with the conventional method.
