Sorry, nothing in cart.
Are you thinking what is the most advanced hernia repair treatment? When there are no symptoms of the hernia, wait and watch is the course of action. Otherwise, the most advanced hernia repair is laparoscopic treatment. There are two main approaches that Pristyn Care clinics follow to surgically treat the hernia.
In open hernia repair, the surgeon makes one large incision at the location of the hernia. The bulge is pushed back in place and sometimes a mesh is placed to provide support to the wall. The weakened muscle wall is closed using sutures, staples or adhesive glue.
Laparoscopic surgery is a procedure performed under general anesthesia where the surgeon makes two to three small incisions. The laparoscope, which is the specialty of Pristyn Care experts, is inserted in the abdomen through one of the incisions. Other surgical instruments are inserted through other incisions. The surgeon inflates the abdomen with the harmless gas to get the better space and view of the internal organs.
The benefits of laparoscopic hernia treatment at Pristyn Care are as follows:
How is hernia diagnosed?
The doctors diagnose the hernia physically if the bulge is clearly visible. The hernia is visible when the patient stands upright. Sometimes it may be pushed back gently when you lay down. But make sure you know how to do it. If there is a pain while pushing back, then do not forcefully push back and consult the doctor immediately. Ultrasound and abdominal X-ray may be asked by the doctor to check the proper bowel movements.
What can happen if the hernia is not repaired?
The hernias do go on their own. It may grow over time and can become more painful and complicated. The complications include:
What are the symptoms and factors that indicate surgery is required?
It normally takes time before the hernia starts showing noticeable symptoms, irritation or pain. Some times pain arises during activities like exercise or lifting weight. Here are some of the signs that show that surgery may be required.
Sometimes the hernias never show symptoms that you can seek medical intervention. But hernias cannot be cured without surgery, so when negative symptoms occur surgery is needed.
Foods to avoid after hernia surgery
If you have undergone laparoscopic hernia surgery, food can make a great impact on your recovery. Eating the right food can help in quick healing and prevent problems such as constipation.
Make sure you eat enough calories to sustain your body through the healing process. Therefore, choose foods that are healthful and nutritious. Follow the dietary instructions given to you by the Pristyn Care after your laparoscopic hernia surgery. Still, if you face any problem after the surgery immediately contact the healthcare provider. Lifestyle changes are very important for a happy and healthy life.
