Hernia Surgery

Using advanced techniques to perform Hernia repair Surgery by most skilled surgeons in Germany

A hernia occurs when fatty tissue or an organ pushes through a weak place in the surrounding connective tissue or muscle wall. A hernia is usually treated with surgery.

A hernia is not usually a serious condition but it will not go away without hernia treatment known as a hernia repair. The common areas where hernias occur are in the groin (inguinal), belly button (umbilical), and the site of a previous operation (incisional).

Open Hernia repair surgery

Open hernia repair is where an incision, or cut, is made in the groin. The surgeon then pushes the hernia back into the abdomen and strengthens the abdominal wall with stitches or synthetic mesh.

Laparoscopic Hernia repair surgery

Laparoscopic (minimally invasive) hernia repair uses a laparoscope, a thin, telescope-like instrument that is inserted through a small incision at the umbilicus (belly button).
