Mesh is a foreign body. Therefore, its use in inguinal hernia repairs is known to cause all sorts of complications like pain, recurrence, infection, etc. We have developed an innovative new technique of inguinal hernia repair without mesh. It uses your own body muscle for repair and gives completely complete cure from inguinal hernia problem.
An un-detached strip of the external oblique aponurosis is stitched on the weak area between the muscle arch and the inguinal ligament to form a new, strong and physiologically dynamic posterior wall that gives protection and results re-herniation.
Normally patient goes home in a day after surgery and can drive car and go to office in 3-4 days time. This operation is now followed in many countries all over the world. We are surprised to see the inquiries from many patients in the developed countries asking for this repair in their country. This is because this operation does not use any foreign body like mesh for repair and therefore there are no complications that are seen in mesh repairs.
A visit to Topix hernia forum or other hernia forums show thousands of posts showing sufferings of many patients due to mesh repairs. But still why surgeons from developed countries are interested in mesh repairs is a big question for us. We have operated on more than 1500 patients with excellent results. Patient is operated under local or spinal anesthesia and is freely mobile in couple of hours. Patient goes home in 24 hours and starts his normal activities immediately thereafter.
