The cost of Hernia Surgery Depends on the following factors.
The final cost can only be calculated after Consultation with the doctor.
There are different types of hernias and hernias may occur anywhere in your body but it is more likely for them to be seen to develop in the areas of the body between the chest and hips. When an organ breaks through a cavity in the muscle or tissue that supports it in its place a hernia occurs and there are different types of hernia
For instance, a stomach wall location that is weakened can get a push by the intestines. In most cases, a hernia occurs in the abdominal region. Other areas like the upper thigh or belly button or groin areas can also be suffered by a hernia
Laparoscopic Hernia : In laparoscopic hernia repair, a camera called a laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen to visualize the hernia defect on a monitor. The image on the monitor is used to guide the surgeon’s movements. The hernia sac is removed from the defect in the abdominal wall, and a prosthetic mesh is then placed to cover the hernia defect. While doing this, surgeons are careful to avoid injuring the nerves that are near the hernia. The small incisions are closed with stitches that dissolve on their own over time.
Open Surgery – Open surgery, in which an incision is made into the body at the hernia's site. The projecting tissue is sewn back together, and the weakening muscular wall is reattached. To offer additional support, a kind of mesh is sometimes placed in the region.
Hernias cannot heal on their own, if left untreated, they usually get bigger and more painful, and can cause serious health risks in some cases.
Ultimately, all hernias are caused by a combination of pressure and an opening or weakness of muscle or fascia.
A hernia diagnosis is typically based on your history of symptoms, a physical exam, and possibly imaging tests.
The only way to effectively treat a hernia is through surgical repair. Whether or not you need surgery depends on the size of your hernia and the severity of your symptoms.
The pain may not just be in the area of the hernia; it can radiate to your hip, back, leg — even to the genitals.
