About the Surgery

A hernia is the protrusion of fatty tissues or some organ through abdominal wall because of weakness. This causes a lot of pain besides many other problems. Most hernias occur in the abdominal cavity, around the groin or between hips and chest. Diagnosis is done using USG Abdomen/Pelvis/Scrotum.   

Treatment options for hernias are:

  • Laparoscopic hernia repair: This is a minimally invasive procedure, that has a high success rate. A camera called a laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen through small incisions to visualize the hernia defect on a monitor. Its benefits include 3 tiny scars rather than one larger incision, less pain after surgery, quicker return to work, shorter recovery time.
  • Open surgery: Open surgery is a major surgery, wherein an incision or cut is made in the groin. The hernia sac is identified, and the hernia is pushed back into the abdomen. The tissue is set back in place and the surgeon then strengthens the abdominal walls with stitches or synthetic mesh. 

Hernia can trigger due to weight-lifting, intestinal pressure, or pregnancy. If you're noticing any such hernia symptoms, visit MedFin clinic and undergo hernia treatment today supervised by professional doctors.

through doctors that have years of experience and are keeping themselves abreast with the latest industry trends and latest medical equipment.

Start by booking an appointment with one of our doctors at MedFin. Before the procedure, the doctor starts with a physical examination, which is guided with the complaints, the patient has approached the doctor with. The doctor may also suggest imaging to assess the size of the hernia. 
  • A thorough history from the patient
  • Clinical examination is a very vital tool to diagnose.
  • Imaging techniques to assist or confirm the diagnosis such as ultrasound, Computed Tomography, or MRI (Magnetic resonance Imaging).Abdominal ultrasound: Use of high-frequency sound waves to create images of the internal structures.
Computed Tomography (CT) scan: 

Computers combined with X-rays to produce images.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan: 

A combination of radio waves and strong magnets to produce images of internal structures.

Barium or Gastrografin X-ray: 

This is suggested if a hiatal or diaphragmatic hernia is suspected. Here the patient will be asked to consume a liquid barium solution or a liquid containing Gastrografin (meglumine sodium and diatrizoate sodium). 

This will be followed by imaging where X-ray images of the digestive tract are taken.

Endoscopy: 
The doctor may also suggest this procedure if a hiatal hernia is suspected.
This procedure involves the introduction of a small tube connected with a small camera connected to a tube into the throat to the esophagus and stomach. 
This will help the doctor visualize the throat, esophagus (food pipe), and stomach.

1.Overview: A camera called a laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen through small incisions to visualize the hernia defect on a monitor and correct the defect.

2.Snapshots:

  • Procedure Type: Laparoscopic
  • Anesthesia: General anesthesia
  • Hospitalization: 1 day
  • Procedure time: Up to 2 hours
  • Recovery Time: 1-2 weeks (4 weeks for full recovery)

3.Post-Surgical Care: 

  • Consume a liquid or soft diet
  • Avoid strenuous activities, lifting heavy weights and sexual intercourse, or as suggested by your surgeon
  • You may take stool softeners, avoid junk/fatty foods, eat high-fiber fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water
  • Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol and never hold urine/stool
  • Also, no baths, pools or hot tubs for 2 weeks. You can take shower after 36 hours of surgery.

4.Advantages of this Procedure: Three tiny scars rather than one larger incision, less pain after surgery, quicker return to work, shorter recovery time.

The doctor resorts to surgery when the hernia is growing in size and is causing pain and discomfort. The hernia is repaired by pushing back the bulging tissue back in position and sewing the area. 

It may involve the use of a surgical mesh to hold the tissue in place. The incision is then stitched to conclude the surgery.

The doctor may decide to perform open surgery or a hernia laparoscopic surgery based on your symptoms. Multiple factors contribute to the doctor’s and patient’s decision to go with either one.

You must discuss the average hernia surgery cost if you’re undergoing an open surgery or the hernia laparoscopic surgery cost in case the doctor has recommended you to undertake laparoscopic surgery. Knowing the expenditure is important prior to initiating your surgery as it allows you to choose between different plans that suits you best.

Consistent pressure and muscle weakness in a particular area of the body contribute to the formation of hernia. They may develop rapidly or over a long period, determined by their causative factors.

The most common hernia causes are:

  • Lifting heavy weights either for exercising or for work
  • Chronic cough caused by conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD)
  • Constipation over a prolonged period of time, resulting in an increase in abdominal pressure
  • Multiple pregnancies.
  • ObesityAscites or fluid accumulation in the abdomen.
  • Post damage from a surgery or injury.
  • A congenital condition, where the hernia is formed in the womb during developmental stages and is present at birth.

The associated risk factors:

  • Family history.
  • Smoking (weakens the connective tissue).
  • Premature birth or low birth weight.

Most hernias do not cause any significant symptoms and you might not even know that you have one. It may be diagnosed during a routine medical examination for some other ailment until which time it stays undetected. It is common to see hernia in men, women and children. As soon as any hernia symptoms are detected, you should consult your doctor before it's too late.

A bulge seen in the abdomen or the groin area may be a hernia. It occurs when organ parts or tissues push through the skin and thus exposing a bulge. 

 This occurs because of the malfunction of the muscular wall which is supposed to hold the organs and tissues in place.

1.Overview: An incision or cut is made in the groin, the hernia sac is identified, and the hernia is pushed back into the abdomen. The surgeon then strengthens the abdominal walls with stitches or synthetic mesh.

2.Snapshots:

  • Procedure Type: OPEN Surgery
  • Anesthesia: Local anesthesia
  • Hospitalization: 1 day
  • Procedure time: 30 – 45 minutes
  • Recovery Time: 4-6 week

3.Post-Surgical Care: 

  • Consume a liquid or soft diet
  • Avoid strenuous activities for 4-6 weeks, lifting heavy weights and sexual intercourse, or as suggested by your surgeon.
  • You may take stool softeners, avoid junk/fatty foods, eat high-fiber fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water
  • Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol and never hold urine/stool.

4.Advantages of this Procedure: For mesh repair, open hernia surgery is a better option.

Your medical professional will be able to diagnose the type of hernia in females, men and children. Accordingly, a hernia treatment can be administered based on the symptoms you detect.

Here’s a quick overview of the different hernia types and their possible symptoms:
Inguinal Hernia:

This is the most common type of hernia seen more frequently in males than in females. 

In males the inguinal canal is a pathway for the spermatic cord and blood vessels which leads to the testicles and in women, the inguinal canal has the round ligament which supports the uterus. 

In this type of hernia, the fatty tissue or a part of the intestine protrudes into the groin.

The symptoms of inguinal hernia are :

  • It may present as a bulge in the area on either side of the pubic bone, which becomes more evident when you're upright, or while coughing or straining
  • Pain or discomfort in your groin
  • A heavy or dragging sensation in the groin
  • Weakness or pressure in the groin
  • Sometimes the intestines may move down into the scrotum which may be associated with pain and swelling around the testicles
An inguinal hernia isn't necessarily dangerous. At times it can lead to life-threatening complications.

Femoral Hernia: 

Here the bulge or the swelling is seen in the groin and affects older women.

Umbilical Hernia: 

Here, the swelling is seen through the belly button (umbilicus, navel). This is a common type of hernia in children.

If you’re noticing hernia umbilical symptoms in your kids, ensure they’re undergoing the hernia umbilical surgery on an immediate basis to reduce the pain.

Hiatal or diaphragmatic Hernia: 

In this hernia, a part of the stomach will be pushed into the chest cavity through an opening in the diaphragm (the horizontal sheet of muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen). 

It is commonly seen in older patients( >50 years and in obese patients).

 The symptoms of a hiatal hernia will be different and more specific. The lump formed here pushes through the diaphragm, causing chest pain, trouble swallowing, and heartburn.

Incisional Hernia: 

Here the tissue protrudes through the site of an abdominal scar from a previous or old abdominal or pelvic operation.

Epigastric Hernia: 

In this type, the fatty tissue protrudes through the abdominal area between the navel and lower part of the sternum (breastbone)

Spigelian Hernia: 

Here the intestine pushes through the abdomen at the side of the abdominal muscle, below the navel.

Depending on the type of your condition, take an estimate of the hernia operation cost prior to the diagnosis from the expert doctors at MedFin

FAQs and Related Articles

If you ignore hernia then it can become trapped in the abdominal wall. This can obstruct the bowel, nausea, vomiting, and the hernia can get strangulated. A strangulated hernia can be life-threatening and requires immediate surgery.

A hernia is a protrusion of a part of a tissue or an organ, beyond its original location and are of various types: Inguinal hernia occurs when a part of the intestine protrudes through weak lower abdominal wall-most often the inguinal canal (more common in men). Umbilical hernias are similar and occur in babies and children seen as a lump near the belly button. A hiatal or diaphragmatic hernia occurs when a part of the stomach tissue pushes through the diaphragm (a respiratory muscle in the chest area ). A ventral hernia is most often seen in the abdominal area.

A hernia can develop due to excessive strain during physical activity or may be present at birth, and can occur due to trauma from previous surgery.The risk factors for developing a hernia are:

  • People who are older or obese.
  • A baby being born prematurely or with lower birth weight.
  • Tension to the abdominal muscles caused by excessive coughing especially in chronic conditions such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder).
  • Constipation.
  • Pregnancy(multiple).
  • Personal or family history of hernias.
You will notice a lump or bulge in your belly or groin region. Kindly consult a doctor when you notice a bulge.
The only treatment option for hernia is surgery. It is advisable to consult a doctor if you have a hernia.

Hernias usually do not go away on their own (except for a few umbilical hernias) without proper medical care and become painful and larger in size. At times, the tissue involved in a hernia may become twisted to limit the blood supply and develop into strangulated hernia that requires urgent medical attention and treatment.

One must avoid excessive physical activity, eat a healthy diet, avoid smoking and treat any underlying chronic diseases by a suitable doctor to prevent the symptoms of the hernia from aggravating. The doctor might suggest some light exercises for better healing as well.

Care is given to relieve the symptoms in cases of smaller size hernias (e.g. supportive truss) under observation, But if it becomes too painful or larger in size, the doctor might suggest open surgery or laparoscopic surgical options. One must visit a general physician surgeon or surgical gastroenterologist for further details.

Untreated hernias can obstruct bowel movements, permanently stick the organ out of the abdominal wall (incarceration), cause strangulation (which can be fatal) or pressurize surrounding tissues. These complications can be difficult to treat and cause huge pain and swelling.
