Laparoscopic Hernia Repair in Lagos
The process for repairing a hernia laparoscopically is identical to other laparoscopic operations. A tiny cut (incision) is made in or just below the navel during general anaesthesia. The abdomen is inflated with air to allow the surgeon to see the organs within.
A laparoscope, a narrow, illuminated scope, is placed into the incision. Other tiny incisions in the lower belly are used to implant the instruments needed to repair the hernia. To fortify the abdominal wall, mesh might be inserted over the defect. It’s also possible to stitch the margins of healthy tissue together.
