Even though we are living in the twenty-first century, still the awareness regarding many diseases and disorders is limited among the population. Take a very clear example of hernia, even the advancements in science have not been able to make us consider it as a serious disorder which can require treatment, in some cases through surgery and most importantly, it needs large spread awareness among the common people. You will be surprised to know when I came to know about the treatment of hernia through surgery, it was when a friend of mine joined laparoscopic training courses in Delhi. Similar to the common understanding, I was unaware of the different types of surgical procedures available for treating hernia when other alternatives fail to perform.

Basically, there are two ways to perform laparoscopic hernia surgery in Delhi, namely open surgery and laparoscopic surgery and it is pretty much the same methodology in every certified hospital and medical institutions in the country. It is necessary to make the patient undergo certain diagnostic assessments before the surgery to examine the size and location of the hernia and whether the patient can successfully handle the operative procedures. The detailed description of both open surgery and laparoscopic surgery for the treatment of hernia is mentioned below:

Open surgery

The operation is performed while the patient is kept under the influence of general anesthesia.  As per the location of the hernia, an incision is made in the nearby area. The professor who supervised the laparoscopic training courses in Delhi was an experienced laparoscopic surgeon in Greater Kailash. She focused on making the incision in the right area for clear access. Through the incision, the doctor reaches the hernia, there are four ways to deal with the hernia, namely, relocating it to its position, tying it in a place to not be effective, to remove it, or to add support. The last option is considered when the size of the hernia is large enough. So basically, depending upon the size and impact of the hernia, the doctors can work through any of these three ways. Once the hernia has been managed, doctors examine the weak area of the muscle which facilitated the progression of hernia in the first place and it is stitched.

Laparoscopic surgery

As the name of the surgery suggests, it is a minimally invasive procedure which makes the healing quick. Firstly, the patient is administered with general anesthesia. After this, a harmless gas is filled in the abdomen to make room for a clear view of the abdomen. Near the location of the hernia, few small incisions are made through which a laparoscope is inserted inside the abdomen. The laparoscope has a tiny camera attached with it which facilitates the doctors to examine the insides of the abdomen on a digital screen. All the renowned laparoscopic surgery training courses offer expertise in handling the laparoscope. The clear view helps in treating the hernia with a mesh. The patient may be discharged on the same day and rehabilitation is quite quick in comparison with the open surgery. The advantages of the laparoscopic surgery have made them a recommendable choice by the experts such as the best laparoscopic surgeon in Delhi NCR.
