Inguinal Hernia Surgery
An inguinal hernia occurs inside the groin where the inguinal canal exists. This opening is meant to be closed after birth, but the muscles and tissue of the abdominal wall can become weak in this area. An inguinal hernia can cause groin pain and may increase risks of intestinal blockages or tissue strangulation. Our inguinal hernia repair specialists at Core Surgical offer inguinal hernia surgery at our medical center in NYC to relieve groin pain and reduce health risks.
Inguinal hernias present as a bulge that occurs in the groin area on one side or the other. Weakness in the lower abdominal wall at the spot of the inguinal canal can allow fatty tissue or bowels to protrude through the canal. The bulge may increase and decrease, and straining can cause the hernia to protrude farther, becoming painful and increasing the risk of incarceration or strangulation. The only option to repair an inguinal hernia is surgery, which we perform at Core Surgical.
Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair
Inguinal hernia surgery can be performed with open or laparoscopic surgery. When possible, our surgeons use laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair surgery to reduce risks and recovery time for our patients. This method uses small incisions, no larger than 1 cm, to access the inguinal canal and perform the hernia repair. Inserting surgical mesh to cover the inguinal opening can strengthen the inner abdominal wall to prevent protruding tissue. The body uses the mesh as a scaffolding to adhere scar tissue across the opening, creating a strong barrier that repairs the hernia defect.
