Surgery

You have just undergone minimally invasive surgery to repair an umbilical/ventral hernia in the . This involves making a small incision in your abdomen in order to gain access to your hernia or hernias. A piece of mesh is placed inside your abdomen in order to repair the hernia defect from the inside.
The end result of this umbilical/ventral hernia repair is identical to laparoscopic hernia repair, but the procedure is less invasive. There is less dissection involved and local anesthesia with sedation is often used instead of general anesthesia, leading to a quicker recovery.
