Inguinal Hernia Repair with Mesh
Groin hernias can cause bulges and pain in the lower pelvic area. One common type of groin hernia is the inguinal hernia, which can occur on either side of the groin. Men are ten times more likely than women to develop an inguinal hernia. For those who suffer from an inguinal hernia, repair with mesh is available through the practice of Danny Shouhed, M.D.
Inguinal hernias can be direct and indirect, requiring different approaches in repair. Indirect inguinal hernias are congenital defects where the hernia sac pushes down into the inguinal canal. A direct inguinal hernia is caused by pressure and a weak spot near the inguinal canal. These hernias are most common in adult males and are usually repaired with surgical mesh.
Minimally-Invasive Inguinal Hernia Surgery
Dr. Danny Shouhed is a hernia repair specialist and board certified gastrointestinal surgeon. Most direct inguinal hernias can be repaired using minimally-invasive surgical techniques using mesh. Small incisions are made in the groin area to access the inguinal canal to push the hernia back into the abdominal cavity. Using laparoscopic or robotic tools, surgical mesh is cut to the exact size of the opening and placed over the space to repair the hernia. Inguinal hernia repair with mesh is an effective option to remove existing hernias and prevent future issues.
Robotic and minimally-invasive surgical techniques are specialties of Dr. Shouhed. If you need an inguinal hernia repair, Dr. Shouhed offers advanced methods to relieve hernia pain and prevent further health complications. In most cases, the hernia repair can be performed through tiny incisions for quicker recovery and less risks from surgery.
