FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW
ABOUT HERNIAS

Before You Have Surgery

Sponsored by
The NORTH PENN HERNIA INSTITUTE
National "Center of Excellence" in Hernia Surgery
Specializing in the Contemporary Surgical Management of Inguinal, Umbilical, Incisional, and all Abdominal Wall Hernias

Surgery for the repair of Inguinal as well as other Abdominal Wall Hernias is one of the most common operations performed in the United States each year. Over 900,000 Hernia Repairs are performed annually. There are many Surgical Techniques and Mesh Products available for hernia repair. At the North Penn Hernia Institute, a Hernia Specialty practice for over 30 years, we use our experience and expertise to select that surgical treatment option which is best suited for each individual patient. We always utilize the "Benchmark" TENSION FREE approach and method of repair to assure both a safe and effective surgical repair of the hernia, with minimal pain and the most rapid recovery of ANY hernia repair technique, including the "keyhole" Laser/Laparoscopic approach, or 'TENSION' tissue-suturing methods still popular in Canada and the USA.


We certainly hope this site will help you to better understand the nature of hernias, as well as assist you in making an informed decision about surgery. We can also happily assist you by offering a
FREE PHONE CONSULTATION.

SURGICAL TECHNIQUE

at the North Penn Hernia Institute
Surgical Repair of Inguinal, Femoral, Umbilical and Most Incisional Hernias can be SAFELY and EFFECTIVELY performed as a "Same Day", Ambulatory Procedure. With the patient awake, yet sedated and comfortably free of pain, the risks of General Anesthesia are avoided. Our patients are walking shortly after surgery, and are
Discharged Home within about 1-2 hours.
We utilize a Mini-Incision "Open" Technique. Under most circumstances, our incisions are very small (about 2 inches or less), located directly over the hernia.
For the most common INGUINAL HERNIA, we utilize a "Tension Free" repair by inserting Mesh to close and repair the hernia defect. This is associated with the Lowest Risk of Recurrence, when compared to other techniques, including older, conventional suture techniques sill popular in many areas of Canada as well as the USA. In addition, and equally important, there is Minimal Post Operative Discomfort, Few Restrictions on Activity and you
RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITY IN DAYS!
We feel that no two hernias are alike, but that all hernias differ from patient to patient, often quite significantly. We therefore feel that no one single TENSION FREE operation or mesh system is suitable for all patients or all hernias. Surgery at NORTH PENN HERNIA INSTITUTE is tailored specifically to the individual needs of each patient. We are expertly familiar with all Tension Free repair techniques, and these mesh systems are fully available to us. We select the precise method that is best suited for each hernia based on our extensive experience developed by performing several hundred hernia repairs annually. This expertise in both routine and complex hernia surgery assures that all of our patients receive the most satisfactory, safest and importantly the most effective repair available. Recovery is therefore more rapid! Pain is minimal, since muscles are not pulled together nor sewn under tension. This fully effective contemporary repair technique allows for your comfortably rapid recovery. The advanced techniques we utilize are associated with the Lowest Risk of Recurrence when compared to other older surgical techniques, including older suture technique repairs popular in areas of Canada and also the USA, or the Laparoscopic "keyhole" method. This technique is equally safe and the most effective for "Recurrent" Hernias.
