Hernia Repair Surgery – Dr Narendra Chopde
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.
Hernioplasty is a type of hernia repair surgery where a mesh patch is sewn over
the weakened region of tissue.
Facts on hernia repair:
• Small hernias may not cause any symptoms
• In general, hernia surgeries are classified as herniorrhaphy or hernioplasty.
• Hernia repairs are day surgeries, so people go home a few hours afterward.
• Hernia surgeries are considered fairly safe and effective.
It often takes 1 to 2 years before hernias begin to cause noticeable, irritating, or
painful symptoms. Some people may only notice hernia symptoms when doing
activities, such as strenuous exercise, for example.
Hernia symptoms and factors that indicate surgery may be necessary include:
• long-term hernia pain or discomfort
• pain or discomfort that interferes with everyday activities
• pain or discomfort intensifying or worsening over time
• large hernias
• fast-growing hernias
• hernias in places where they might worsening or enlarging, such as the
• sharp abdominal pain and vomiting
• hernias that put pressure on nerves to cause irritation and numbness
In some cases, hernias never end up causing enough symptoms to warrant
medical intervention. But hernias cannot resolve or heal without surgery, so
when negative symptoms occur surgery is necessary.
