In the Laparoscopic Hernia Repair, three incisions of 1/2 -1 inch are made in the abdominal wall. A thin and long camera (known as laparoscope) is inserted into the body through access tube in first incision while, in other incision, surgical instruments are placed. Camera offers a clear internal view of abdominal walls and hernia affected portion that can be displayed on the screen. In this way, hernia can be easily repaired within the body through surgical mesh.
