Hernia Repair Options

Surgeons Looking at Camera

Hernia repairs have been recently divided into two basic types: tension and tension-free.

National Hernia Network surgeons will make an honest evaluation of your condition and recommend the most appropriate hernia repair. As a general rule, you can trust what your hernia surgeon recommends, but be sure to listen carefully, take notes, and ask questions.

The actual success and utility of the many types of hernia repairs is an ongoing study and a constant debate. Remember that the most important determinant of the success of your repair is the experience and skill of the surgeon operating. This is much more important that the actual name of the hernia repair performed.
