Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is substituting the open surgery technique in all around the world, and the picture is very similar in Varanasi as well. For a diverse range of problems, including gall bladder stones, kidney and ureteric stones, various kinds of hernia, surgery of ovary and uterus and also for obesity, the minimally invasive surgical procedure is recommended over the open surgery technique. Laparoscopic surgery can also be carried out for problems related to stomach, liver, pancreas, rectum, and common bile duct.

So, let’s understand how the minimally invasive surgery is carried out, in details.

A few tiny incisions of 5-6 mm are made in the patient’s body during laparoscopic or keyhole surgery. The incisions are used to insert cameras and other instruments inside the cavity of the body, to carry out the procedure. The operation is executed with the help of the tools that offers visuals and movement inside the body. Once the surgery is complete, the instruments are carried out and incisions are closed using stitches.

As we avoid making large incisions through laparoscopic surgery, this procedure is practically scarless, bloodless and painless.

Hernia surgery varanasi

Hernia surgery can be done in two ways, open surgery and laparoscopic surgery. As there are different kinds of hernia, a surgeon might take different approaches to repair the hernia effectively. However, almost every expert doctor prefers laparoscopic hernia surgery for ensuring the maximum benefits of the patient.

Nowadays, ‘Hernia Mesh’ is a product commonly used in hernia repairs. Surgical meshes, in particular, the ones used to repair hernias, have been in use since 1891. Yet there are many doubts regarding the same, till this day.

Today, on behalf of Varanasi Hospital, we answer some frequently asked questions about mesh in hernia repair surgery.

What Is a ‘Mesh’?

Surgical mesh is a medical instrument that is used to provide extra support to the weakened tissue or damaged tissue. The mesh looks like a flat, grid-like structure which is mainly used to cover the hernia surgery incision. There are two types of mesh, which are made from either synthetic material and animal tissue. The surgeon decides which type, depending from case to case.

How Does It Work?

Mesh fortifies the tissue around the hernia. Surgeons joint the mesh or staple them after repairing the hernia. Over time the tissues grow around the mesh and secure the repair, mitigating the recurrence of hernia in the future.

Does Hernia Surgery Require A Mesh?

A hernia can be repaired without a mesh if it’s a small one. Mainly a small can be repaired with just a suture. However, if hernia left untreated, it often grows over time, which cannot be treated with the only suture. Then it often requires a surgical mesh for a successful repair.

What Are The Advantages Of Using Mesh?

Previously, the hernia used to be repaired with suturing, quite successfully. But in many cases hernia recurred again and again, as the incision acts as a weak spot in the abdomen. But the usage of hernia mesh in surgery has changed that for good. It minimized the risk of the hernia recurrence.

Will It Cause Any Problem In The Future?

Surgical mesh is a foreign body, which is being placed in your body through hernia surgery. After surgery, it may get contaminated and cause swelling, redness, and irritation. But it has been found that mesh infection mostly occurs due to the usage of low-quality mesh. The best hospital, on the other hand, provide the best quality surgical mesh and lowers the chances of any such infection.

When a Mesh Is Required, Which Will Be The Best Surgery Procedure?

It depends on the patient’s condition and the doctor’s recommendation. However, experts surgeons, mostly prefer laparoscopic surgery, as it provides quick recovery without any complications.

Hope we helped you with our answers. We will be back soon, with more questions regarding surgical mesh, so stay tuned for the next part.
