Hernias can occur when there is a weak area in the abdominal wall that allows tissue to push through the opening. Hernias can cause pain and may increase risks for serious complications that could be life-threatening. Surgery is required to repair hernias, but using mesh to fix a hernia has a history of complications. Dr. Steven Rueda at Precision Medical Specialists offers no-mesh hernia repair surgery at our state-of-the-art medical facility in Wellington, FL.
Hernia repair involves retracting the tissue that is pushing through a weakened area and securing the abdominal wall to stop future hernias. Mesh has been used to cover the opening in most hernia repairs, but it has caused complications in some patients. Since the mesh is a foreign object, it can be rejected by the body and cause inflammation and other issues. There are incidences of mesh perforating organs and causing serious health risks. No-mesh hernia repair reduces these risks by using surgical techniques to strengthen the weakened abdominal wall without inserting mesh or other material into the body.
Surgical Hernia Repair
The surgical hernia repair without mesh requires extensive skill and expertise. While mesh will cover the opening and is a much simpler method, the surgical repair without mesh takes an experienced surgeon using precise techniques to complete. The benefits are a repaired abdominal wall that does not contain any surgical mesh that can cause injury to organs or create a reaction that will require a secondary surgery to remove the mesh.
