Femoral Hernia Repair Procedure

Femoral hernia repair is a surgical procedure used to fix a type of hernia that occurs in the groin area where the thigh meets the pelvis. This specific type of hernia is less common than other types of hernias but can still cause significant discomfort and complications if left untreated. During the procedure, a surgeon will typically make an incision near the site of the hernia, push the protruding tissue back into place, and close up any weakened areas in the abdominal wall with stitches or mesh.

When is This Procedure Necessary?

Femoral hernia repair surgery is considered medically necessary when the hernia becomes symptomatic and poses a further risk. Symptoms of a femoral hernia may include groin pain, swelling, and the presence of a lump or bulge in the groin area. If left untreated, femoral hernias can progress and potentially lead to strangulation, which is a serious and potentially life-threatening complication. Therefore, surgical intervention is recommended to repair the hernia and prevent these complications from occurring.

What To Expect

Patients are typically under general anesthesia to ensure their comfort throughout the procedure. A small incision is then made in the groin area, allowing the surgeon access to the hernia bulge. The protruding tissue or organs are carefully pushed back into place, and a mesh is often used to strengthen the weakened abdominal wall and prevent the recurrence of the hernia. The incision is then closed using sutures or surgical staples, and the patient is monitored closely as they awaken from anesthesia.

After undergoing femoral hernia repair surgery, patients can expect a recovery process that typically involves a hospital stay of one to two days. Once discharged, patients are advised to avoid strenuous activity for several weeks and gradually reintroduce light exercise through physical therapy. Patients need to follow their post-operative care instructions closely, which may include wearing a supportive garment or bandage over the surgical site and attending follow-up appointments to monitor healing progress. While some discomfort and swelling are normal after surgery, persistent pain or redness at the incision site should be reported promptly to a healthcare provider.
