McVay Hernia Repair

The McVay hernia repair is derived from the Bassini hernia repair. It is a transversalis fascia based repair that incorporates Coopers ligiment in the repair. This has the advantage over the Bassini repair of dealing with potential recurrences through the femoral canal.

We do not endorse a particular named repair technique. We believe that a hernia surgeon should be familiar with all of the named repairs as he would all of his many surgical tools. We prefer non-mesh hernia repairs for the sake of avoiding mesh related chronic pain.
