What to expect during Laparoscopic Hernia Repair

The patient will be supine with folded towels around incision site, along with a lap drape.

The camera, light cord, insufflation tubing, suction irrigator, and bovie will be passed off and clamped to the drape.

The surgeon will use a 15 or 11 blade to made incisions where the ports will go. Usually 2-3 5mm ports and either a 12mm or 8mm port will be placed.

Bowel or wave graspers will be used throughout the surgery to separate the tissue from the hernia inside the abdomen. Scissors, a Maryland, or a bullet grasper may also be used.

Once the hernia has been emptied of bowel, a piece of mesh is usually place to prevent reoccurrence. Either a mesh tacker or suture will be used to hold it in place.

Once the mesh has been placed, the gas will be turned off, and the port sites will be closed. A monocryl is commonly used for closure, and skin glue is usually used for a dressing.
