A hernia is the protrusion of an organ or tissue out of the body cavity in which it normally lies.

By far the most common abdominal hernias are the so-called inguinal hernias.

Other hernias include:

· umbilical

· femoral

· incisional

· diaphragmatic

· Umbilical hernias

A hernia repair is achieved in the following ways:

Hernia Repair – Standard Repair

In a standard repair, an incision is made over the area of the hernia and carried down carefully through the sequential tissue layers.

The aim is to separate away all the normal tissue and define the margins of the hole or weakness. Once this has been completed, the hole is closed, usually by some combination of suture and a plastic mesh.

One of the problems with this approach is that it can put excessive strain on the surrounding tissues through which the sutures are passed.

Over time, with normal bodily exertion, this strain can lead to the tearing of these stressed tissues and the formation of another hernia.

Hernia Repair – The Latest Techniques

In order to provide a more secure repair, an alternative technique is now available, which bridges the hole or weakness with a piece of plastic-like mesh material.

The mesh is a permanent material and, when sewn, allows the body's normal healing process to incorporate it into the local structures.

After the hernia repair is completed, the overlying tissues and skin are surgically closed, usually with absorbable sutures.

A number of factors have led to the recent development of a new method of repair called laparoscopic hernia repair.

This technique is really an extension of a traditional mesh repair method (preperitoneal repair) that was usually used in patients who had already experienced several hernia recurrences at the same site.

Previously, this mesh repair approach had required a separate incision somewhat removed from the target area. However, with the progressive development of the instruments and techniques for laparoscopic surgery, the same procedure can now be done with several relatively small incisions. This allows the surgeon to enter the space behind the hernia defect and place the mesh with minimal injury to the surface of the abdomen.

India -A World Leader in Medical Tourism India is a world leader in medical tourism and with good reason. Indian corporate hospitals are comparable to hospitals anywhere in the world. In fact, India offers world-class medical facilities that are comparable with the USA or UK.

In addition, the high concentration of expatriate Indian medical staff working abroad particularly, in the US and UK, gives patients confidence, as they are already used to the expertise and professionalism of Indian medical staff.

Hernia Repair Costs In the UK, the typical cost for example is £1,500 – £2,000; in India, this price is considerably lower at £570 - £1,450.
