Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Mesh Repair (TAPP)

A groin swelling is commonly due to a muscular weakness resulting in a Hernia (Inguinal). A Hernia needs to be repaired surgically. The best results of repair are obtained with the use of reinforcement, i.e. using a mesh. Most Hernias of the Inguinal region (groin) can be repaired Laparoscopically (Key Hole Surgery). After giving the patient anesthesia, using tiny key holes the defect in the muscle is repaired Laparoscopically and reinforced with a Mesh. The patient is usually discharged after 24 hours with no major restrictions and is able to resume work quickly.
