1) Standard Open Repair:Performed routinely with local anaesthesia and intravenous sedation.
It involves a 10cm cut in the groin, ﬁnding the hernia, reduction of contents back to the abdomen and patching the defect with polypropylene mesh to strengthen the area of weakness to prevent the hernia from coming back.
2) Minimally Invasive (Laparoscopic or key hole) Repair: Longer time of rest (average 6 weeks) after surgery and the chance of the hernia coming back (recurrent hernia) are some of the limitation of open Hernia surgery which led to rapid popularity of Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery all over the world and in India.
