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 weight. A laparoscopy can be used to help with diagnosis. 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. General or Gastro-intestinal surgeons can carry out this procedure.
