Inguinal Hernia Repair
Surgeons at Methodist Mansfield Minimally Invasive Surgical Associates perform this procedure using a laparoscope, or tiny telescope connected to a special camera. The laparoscope is inserted through a cannula, a small hollow tube, allowing the surgeon to view the hernia and surrounding tissue on a video screen. Other cannulae are inserted that allow the surgeon to work inside the abdomen. A small piece of surgical mesh is placed over the hernia defect and held in place with small surgical staples. This operation is usually performed with anesthesia.
