Laser hernia repair

Can a hernia be repaired with a laser?

No, a hernia cannot be repaired with a laser. You may be thinking of laparoscopic hernia repair which is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. We do not recommend this procedure however because it has a high recurrance rate and requires the use of mesh.
