During an open hernia repair, the surgeon gains direct access to the hernia site through the incision. The protruding tissues, often part of the intestine, are carefully pushed back into their normal position. The weakened abdominal wall is then strengthened and reinforced, typically with the use of sutures or a mesh material to provide additional support.
One of the primary advantages of open hernia repair is that it allows the surgeon to have a clear and direct view of the hernia, facilitating precise repair. Additionally, this approach has been widely practiced for many years, and surgeons are well-versed in its techniques.
However, open hernia repair is associated with larger incisions compared to minimally invasive methods., open hernia repair remains a viable option, especially in cases where laparoscopic or robotic approaches may not be suitable due to specific patient factors or the nature of the hernia.
Ultimately, the choice between open and minimally invasive hernia repair methods depends on individual patient characteristics, the size and type of the hernia, and the surgeon’s expertise and preferences. Patients should discuss these options thoroughly with Dr Alvaro Garcia to determine the most appropriate approach for their specific situation.
