Incisional Hernia Procedure

Incisional hernia repair is a surgical procedure performed to correct a protrusion of tissue through an incision from a previous abdominal surgery. During this procedure, the surgeon will make an incision near the hernia to expose the weakened area and use various approaches to repair the hernia depending on certain factors. The overall goal of this procedure is to eliminate pain and discomfort that the patient experiences and to prevent complications like bowel obstruction or strangulation, which can be life-threatening fs left untreated.

When is This Procedure Necessary?

Incisional hernia repair becomes medically necessary when the integrity of a surgical incision site becomes compromised, resulting in a protrusion of abdominal organs or tissues through the weakened area. This condition typically occurs after previous abdominal surgery, as the incision site may not completely heal or strengthen over time. Several factors contribute to the necessity of repair, including the size and location of the hernia, symptoms experienced by the patient such as pain or discomfort, and potential complications such as bowel obstruction or strangulation. To determine if surgery is necessary, the doctor will review the patient’s overall health and the benefits of such a procedure.

What To Expect

Patients will be under general anesthesia to ensure their comfort throughout the procedure. The surgeon will make an incision near the site of the hernia, and will carefully dissect the surrounding tissue to reach the weakened region. Next, the surgeon will reduce the hernia sac and place mesh over it to prevent it from recurring. When the goal of the procedure has been achieved, the surgeon will close the incision and the patient will be removed from the anesthesia.

After the procedure, patients may experience pain and discomfort at the site of the hernia and incision. This is manageable through nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pain medications prescribed by the doctor.
