Hospital IMG, at the medical vanguard. In October, the first laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery was performed in the East region. The pioneering procedure was carried out by Dr. Franklin Robles, Medical Director of Hospital IMG. Who exposes this technique as a minimally invasive management of inguinal hernias.
The treatment of inguinal hernia is surgical in practically all cases, there are two types of approaches for this pathology:
– Conventional: more painful, recovery slower, greater Limitations in the post operative.
– Laparoscopic: minimally invasive, less painful, faster recovery, more aesthetic and less limiting post operative.
Dr. Robles explains that “An inguinal hernia is a protrusion of the contents of the abdominal cavity by a weak point in the inguinal canal. Only one surgical operation can resolve an inguinal hernia. The diagnosis of inguinal hernia lies in the verification of the existence of protrusion at the hernia level, especially when performing abdominal effort, when coughing, etc., so that, most of the time, the physical examination reveals the presence of the hernia. “
Ultrasound and CT are useful for the detection of small hernias. The differential diagnosis should be made especially with the varicocele and the hydrocele.
