Ventral Hernia Surgery with one mesh

Why is ventral hernia surgery done?

Ventral hernia surgery is done to repair a weakness in the abdominal wall that causes a portion of the abdominal contents to protrude through the cavity into the abdominal wall. It commonly occurs due to a defect in the wall due to surgery.


How is the surgery with one mesh only done?

  • A laparoscope, a tiny telescope with a television camera attached, and other laparoscopic tools are inserted through small incisions in the abdomen.
  • Any scar tissue present is removed and a surgical mesh is inserted into the abdomen.
  • The mesh is fixed under the hernia defect to the strong tissues of the abdominal wall by means of few incisions and sutures.
  • The sutures go through the entire thickness of the abdominal wall and are placed through smaller incisions around the circumference of the mesh.
