Advantages of Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Surgery over an open operation

  • Less post-operative pain
  • Smaller incisions and Faster Recovery.
  • No further incisions required for patients with hernias in both groins (bi-lateral hernia).
  • Ideal method for patients with recurrent hernias after previous surgery.
  • Early discharge from hospital – either same day or next day after surgery.
  • Very early return to work. Often within 3 days forsedentary workers and around 1 to 2 weeks for manual workers. This should be discussed with your surgeon.
  • Approximately 10% of hernias do recur; however with the use of special meshes and laparoscopic techniques the recurrence rates can be as low as 1 %.
