Hernia repair

Hernia repair

An inguinal hernia is one of the most common types of hernia. It appears as a swelling along the groin. The lump may be pushed back into the groin,but this may be painful. It becomes visible when a person coughs or lifts any eight. The fatty tissue or the bowel protrudes into the groin through a weak spot in the abdominal wall. Complications of inguinal hernia are a build-up of fluid, swelling, pain and numbness. A repair is usually performed laparoscopically, using a type of mesh which is placed over the weak spot in the bowel wall to strengthen it.
