Surgery

You have just undergone non mesh inguinal hernia repair, otherwise known as shouldice repair. This involves making an incision in your lower abdomen in order to gain access to your hernia or hernias. The hernia is repaired by suturing the abdominal muscles together in four separate layers in order to close the defect causing the hernia. This is a non mesh inguinal hernia repair, typically done under local anesthesia with sedation.
