Emergency Cases


A hernia is usually treated with surgery. The three main types of hernia surgery are open repair, laparoscopic (minimally invasive) repair, and robotic repair

A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. For example, the intestines may break through a weakened area in the abdominal wall.We can compare hernia to an old tube buldging out of a weakened area in a tyre.Hernias are most common in the abdomen.they can also appear in the upper thigh, belly button, and groin regions.


  1. Inguinal hernias are the most common type of hernia. They make up about 70 percent of all hernia patients.This type of hernia is more common in men than in women. This is because a man’s testicles descend through the inguinal canal shortly after birth, and the canal is supposed to close almost completely behind them. Sometimes, the canal does not close properly, leaving a weakened spot prone to hernias.
  2. Hiatal hernia occurs when part of your stomach protrudes up through the diaphragm into the chest.
  3. Umbilical hernias occur in babies and children under six months of age if their intestines bulge through the abdominal wall near the bellybutton.
  4. Incisional hernias can occur after you have abdominal surgery. Your intestines may push through the incision scar or the surrounding, weakened tissue.


The most common symptom of a hernia is a bulge or lump in the affected area.

More symptoms of a hernia include:

  • Swelling or bulge in the groin or scrotum (the pouch that contains the testicles).
  • Increased pain at the site of the bulge.
  • Pain while lifting.
  • Increase in the bulge size over time.
  • A dull aching sensation.
  • A sense of feeling full or signs of bowel obstruction.


  • Failure of the abdominal wall to close properly in the womb (congenital defect)
  • Age
  • Damage from injury or surgery
  • Being pregnant (puts pressure on your abdomen)
  • Being constipated (causes you to strain when having a bowel movement)
  • Heavyweight lifting
  • Fluid in the abdomen (ascites)
  • Being overweight or obese
  • A chronic cough
  • Chronic constipation
  • Smoking (which can trigger a chronic cough)
  • Conditions such as cystic.
  • The persons who under went previous open sergeries (Commonly LSCS)


If left untreated, hernia will probably grow larger and more painful. A portion of the intestine could become trapped, or ❝incarcerated,❞ in the abdominal wall. This can obstruct the bowel, causing severe pain, nausea, and constipation. If the trapped section of intestine cannot receive enough blood flow, ❝strangulation❞ occurs. This can cause the intestinal tissue to become infected or die and is a life threatening medical emergency


There are 3 types of techniques used to perform Hernia Surgery and they are:

  • Open Hernia Surgery
  • Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery
  • Incisional Hernia Surgery

Patel hospital, with its world class equipment and experience doctors introduce LAPAROSCOPIC HERNIA SURGERY. Laparoscopic techniques involve minimal pain, blood loss and scar and the patient will have to be hospitalized for a very minimal period of time and can get back to his/her routine much earlier.Laparoscopic hernia surgery uses an instrument called a laparoscope. Between two and five small incisions are made through the abdominal wall through which are passed the laparoscope (a thin telescope with a light on the end) and surgicals. It is also often referred to as minimally invasive or minimal access surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is hernia surgery?

The doctor prescribes for a hernia surgery when the size of the hernia starts growing and causing pain.

2. What is the difference between open hernia surgery and laparoscopic hernia surgery?

Laparoscopic hernia repair is a minimally invasive surgery with less pain, less blood loss, and quicker recovery. It involves the use of laparoscope which makes tiny holes in the abdomen and repairs the defect.

3. Is hernia surgery painful?

Hernia surgery is done under general or local anaesthesia based on the type of procedure done.

4. Can I workout after hernia surgery?

It is important that you avoid strenuous exercises, lifting heavy weights, and sexual intercourse till your doctor gives you a go-ahead.

5. What to eat after hernia surgery?

You need to stay on a liquid or soft diet as suggested by your surgeon. In addition, your doctor might advise you take stool softeners to prevent any pressure while passing the stool.

6. What is the recovery time for hernia surgery?

The recovery time for hernia repair depends on the type of hernia treatment. The average recovery time for hernia is 2-3 weeks while strenuous activities should be avoided for 1-2 months after the procedure.
