Describe no mesh hernia surgery.


Non-mesh hernia surgery is a repair, not a patch job. Normal anatomy and function is restored. No mesh hernia surgery can best be described by anology. For example, If you accidently cut your skin you will see a doctor to get it repaired. Your doctor will close the injury with sutures which will then allow it to heal naturally and back completely to normal. We can repair an inguinal hernia by the same principal. An inguinal hernia is an injury to the transversalis fascia. If we suture the injury closed it will heal back to normal. This is accomplished without a plug and without a patch and we do not rearrange your normal anatomy. When you heal every thing is back to normal and there is a very low chance of the hernia coming back.

We offer a repair rather than a patch job.
