Stitching

Stitching was the most common method used around the world until the London Hernia Consultants perfected the Open Mesh system.

It involves an operation under general anaesthesia where the surgeon pushes back the bulge and then places several layers of stitches under tension, which must hold the abdominal wall in place.

 

Stitching

Stitching was the most common hernia repair method used around the world until London Hernia Consultants perfected the Open Mesh system.

It involves an operation under general anaesthesia where the surgeon pushes back the bulge and then places several layers of stitches under tension, which must hold the abdominal wall in place.

Post-operative recovery can last up to a week and physical activity is not advised for some weeks.

It can distort sensitive tissue and lead to pain when a patient coughs or sneezes.

Is No Treatment An Option?

Many hernias do not hurt so the temptation is to leave them and get on with life. However, failing to get medical advice can be damaging and is not recommended. If left the hernia will grow and discomfort and pain, even if negligible to start with, will intensify.
