Doctors Opinions Differs When Asked Which Type of Hernia Repair Surgery Is Best

Hernia repair patients are rarely informed that they have a choice between two very different types of hernia repair procedures

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 - Millions of men and women are diagnosed with a hernia every year and are faced with making some serious decisions. The first is whether or not the pain that they are experiencing is severe enough to force them to have hernia repair surgery immediately. If they are not is too much pain the patient may elect to delay the surgery but are warned that the hernia will not repair itself on its own. Also, if an intestinal hernia is left unrepaired the intestine can twist like a sausage causing a life-threatening blockage requiring more complicated emergency surgery, a hospital stay, and lengthier recovery time.

The next and just as important decision to make is to select a doctor and hospital based on the surgical technique they specialize in. The two basic forms of hernia repair are natural tissue or hernia repair mesh. Most newer, less experienced doctors prefer using synthetic hernia repair mesh using laparoscopic surgery. Other doctors opt for repairing hernias the old fashioned way surgically without using the synthetic, plastic, hernia repair mesh device. There are pros and cons to each depending on who you ask.

Hernia repair mesh using laparoscopic surgery is preferred for the smaller incision that is required and thus a shorter recovery time required. "Most people who have laparoscopic hernia repair surgery can go home the same day. The recovery time is about 1 to 2 weeks. You most likely can return to light activity after 1 to 2 weeks. Strenuous exercise should wait until after 4 weeks of recovery" according to UW General anesthesia is required for laparoscopic repair. Doctors prefer making two or more small incisions when repairing multiple hernias laparoscopically using hernia repair mesh. Doctors that specialize in hernia repair using surgical mesh cite the procedures lower rate of hernia repair failure needing a second revision surgery or more. Hernia mesh surgeons cite a 5% failure rate.

On the other side of the coin are the few doctors that still use natural tissue hernia repair versus mesh and an open surgical procedure versus laparoscopy instead of hernia repair mesh due to the severity of the potential consequences to the patient if their hernia repair mesh fails. Traditional hernia repair surgeons usually shun using hernia repair mesh because of the severity of the complications that can occur from hernia repair mesh failure. Hernia mesh patients have reported that the mesh calcifies and hardens producing jagged edges that cause damage to surrounding organs as well as re-damaging the surgically repaired hernia. Hernia mesh is made from polypropylene plastic, a material more suitable to make plastic sandwich bags that to be placed inside the human body. Hernia mesh often migrates and can fall to the lower bowels and cause lacerations and life-threatening blockages.
