Hills Colorectal Surgery also provides services for patients with inguinal hernia, femoral hernia, umbilical hernia, incisional hernia and parastomal hernia. We are able to perform the hernia operation using modern laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery techniques.
The inguinal/femoral hernia, incisional hernia and parastomal hernia can be performed laparoscopically if they are deemed suitable. A mesh is used for the repair that has been proven to have the lowest recurrence rate. The use of Glubran 2 (a form of superglue) has replaced the use of absorbable tacks for holding the mesh in place. This has resulted in reduction of postoperative pain related to the tacks in our patients.
