Hernia Surgery

A hernia occurs when an organ bulges out from the weak portion of the surrounding tissue. It causes pain and discomfort, and it is corrected surgically. It is done by open surgery or laparoscopic surgery. In open surgery, a small incision is made, and the weak portion of the organ is pushed back and closed by using stitches. In laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon uses a laparoscope to repair the hernia with mesh.
