Only surgery is the treatment.
Early intervention is necessary for better success rates with Minimal complications or Side effects.

Open Hernioplasty

  1. Onlay

  3. Underlay

Laparoscopic Repair

  2. E-TEP-RS

There is no role of medicines, exercise, Yoga, oil massage, Desi Home remedies, Hernia belts or TRUSS for hernia treatment. Use of this can complicate the problem

In general it is quite safe esp. Laparoscopic surgery has very low infection rates.

  1. Immediate
     – Infection
     – Bleeding
     – Intestinal Injury

  2. Delayed
     – Recurrence ( 4 – 15 %)

Early surgery when hernia size is small means less chances of hernia coming back.

Treatment by Experienced Hernia Surgeon will have less recurrence rates.
