A hernia occurs if tissue or muscle (that holds your organs in their place) opens by some force towards an organ of the body. A weak abdominal wall allowing tissue or intestine to breakthrough would be an example of this. Often, a hernia can originate in the abdomen, but can also occur in the groin or upper thighs. Dr. Dasari may suggest minimally invasive surgery to repair the hernia at Centennial Hills Hospital or an outpatient surgery center closest to his patients.
A bulge is the most obvious sign of a hernia. Other complications that are linked to hernia can be coughs, swallowing difficulty, and heartburn. In acute cases, constipation, vomiting, and excruciating pain can be symptoms. In a few patients, dragging, weakness in the groin and a sensation of pressure might be a symptom of hernia.
The type of hernia repair treatment a patient may need can vary. The two types of hernia surgeries include:
Open Surgery: In this procedure, the patient is given anesthesia or sedation. The hernia is then closed making use of mesh or sutures and in some cases, both of them. In the end, staples, surgical glue, and sutures are used to stitch the wound. Dr. Dasari may suggest to be mobile after the surgery but it does take time to resume your normal activities.
Laparoscopic Repair: In this minimally invasive procedure, small incisions in the abdomen are made. The patient is given general anesthesia to avoid pain. Making internal organs visible, the abdomen is inflated through a gas. Later, a laparoscope in a tiny tube is inserted through an incision. Dr. Dasari repairs the hernia by utilizing a systematic mesh. This helps in avoiding scars left by previous surgeries. After the procedure is finished, it may take some while for the patient to recover completely.
