Hernia Repair



A hernia occurs when an organ or internal tissue breaks through a hole in the muscles. Hernia repair surgery or herniorrhaphy involves returning the displaced tissues to their proper position.
.
The different types of hernia surgery include:
1. Herniorrhaphy (tissue repair)- It involves a surgeon making a long incision directly over the hernia then using surgical tools to open the cut enough to access it.Tissues or a displaced organ are then returned to their original location, and the hernia sac is removed. The surgeon stitches the sides of the muscle opening or hole through which the hernia protruded. Once the wound has been sterilized, it is stitched shut.
.

2. Hernioplasty: In hernioplasty, instead of stitching the muscle opening shut, the surgeon covers it with a flat, sterile mesh, usually made of flexible plastics, such as polypropylene, or animal tissue.
