Why do hernias require surgery?

Abdominal hernias are mostly caused by reduced muscle elasticity and a weakening of the connective tissue membrane of the abdominal cavity, and for this reason conservative treatments are completely ineffective. Neither bandages nor physiotherapy can help strengthen the abdominal wall or close the openings through which internal organs may protrude.

The only effective treatment method is surgery. At GMS Hospital we treat abdominal hernias using non-tensioned hernioplasty, which provides the following benefits:

  • Latest-generation endoprostheses (including 3D grids).
  • Minimal trauma to surrounding tissues.
  • Short recovery period.
  • Discharge from hospital within 24 hours.
  • No complications or risk of recurrence.

Hernias are dangerous due to their tendency to clamp shut, which can lead to the tissue death of internal organs. Thanks to the latest microsurgical techniques, hernias can be eradicated in just one hour. After 6 weeks, the patient can return to a normal life, forgetting about the problem forever.

Hernia treatment methods

GMS Hospital surgeons make extensive use of the latest surgical techniques for hernia treatment - non-tensioned hernioplasty using mesh implants from leading manufacturers. Depending on the clinical case, operations can be performed using the following methods:

  • Laparoscopic hernioplasty. The procedure is carried out using microsurgical instruments with integrated optics, through several punctures. Tissue trauma is minimized, reducing the risk of complications and contributing to a speedy recovery. Patients can go home a day after their surgery.
  • Open hernioplasty. The operation is performed through an external incision. Our surgeons use the utmost care to make the smallest possible incision, and thanks to the use of the latest materials and cosmetic sutures the aesthetic result achieved is very high. Patients spend a maximum of 2-3 days in the hospital.

The selection of the treatment method depends on various factors such as the general health of the patient, the existence of complications, and the type, size and location of the hernia.
