A hernia occurs when an organ in the abdomen displaces due to the weakening of the muscles that surround the particular organ. There are several causes of hernia. Some of them are- consuming tobacco, smoking, poor nutrition, chronic constipation, etc. A hernia can occur in the abdomen, upper thigh area, belly button, or groins. Although rare, a hernia can occur in an infant also due to the weakness in the muscles during birth, but in general, it occurs later in life.
A hernia doctor will diagnose a hernia in a physical examination. The diagnosis of a hernia is easier as a bulge in the area where the hernia is present will be visible. For an accurate diagnosis, a patient may be asked to stand, strain or cough. In addition, imaging tests such as an MRI, CT scan, or abdominal ultrasound might be needed if the bulge isn't readily apparent.
At Yes Clinic in India, we treat hernia with laparoscopic hernia repair as it has a shorter recovery time. The modern daycare surgical procedure entails the insertion of a laparoscope, a medical device that has an inbuilt camera, through a small incision in the abdomen. Once the incision is done, surgeons can view the internal structures with the camera. The surgeon can place a 3D Mesh to strengthen the weak muscle. The best hernia repair treatments are painless and performed when the patient is under anesthesia. A patient can go home the next day and recover to the fullest in less than a week after laparoscopic hernia repair.
