Laparoscopic surgery :

It requires insertion of a laparoscope through the incisions through which our surgeon visualizes the hernia and performs the surgery. Our medical expert can carry out the procedure by two methods -

  • TAPP repair

    Trans Abdominal Preperitoneal Repair- is performed for obstructed hernias and obese patients.
