Open surgery groin hernia repair at Hereford Hospital
Or call us on
A hernia is tear or weak spot that develops in the layer of muscle in your abdominal wall resulting in the contents of your abdomen pushing through.
There are several procedures to repair a hernia. Open repair takes about one hour. A variety of anaesthetics may be used.
They will make an incision (cut) in your groin and remove the "hernial sac". To strengthen the muscle layer they will use stitches and may insert a synthetic mesh to cover the weak spot.
Open surgery for groin hernia repair is usually done as a day case meaning you can go home the day of the procedure.
