Hiatal Hernia Repair Procedure

Hiatal hernia repair is a surgical procedure to correct a hiatal hernia, a condition where a portion of the stomach pushes through the diaphragm into the chest cavity. This condition manifests symptoms such as heartburn or discomfort and is typically discovered during an X-ray, endoscopy, or another diagnostic procedure. Hiatal hernia repair is a surgical procedure to push the stomach back into place. This procedure may vary depending on the patient’s unique condition, their general health, and other factors.

When is This Procedure Necessary?

Hiatal hernias do not always require surgery, as many patients can live comfortably with them. However, it is important to understand that hiatal hernias cannot just go away on their own. If the hernia begins causing discomfort, heartburn, trouble swallowing, or shortness of breath, hiatal hernia repair becomes medically necessary.

What To Expect

During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the abdomen to access the affected area. The stomach is then pulled back into its normal position and secured in place with sutures or mesh material. Sometimes, this surgical procedure also involves reshaping the muscles in the lower esophagus. A hiatal hernia can also be performed using a laparoscopic approach, which uses a small camera to view the region without the need for a large incision.

The recovery process following hiatal hernia repair surgery involves a period of rest and a gradual return to normal activities. Patients are typically advised to restrict physical exertion and heavy lifting for several weeks post-surgery to allow the incision site to heal properly. Pain management is an integral part of the recovery process, with medications prescribed by healthcare providers to alleviate discomfort. Patients need to follow their healthcare provider’s instructions regarding diet and activity levels during the recovery period to avoid complications.
