Surgical Technique (Simplified Explanation)

Under general anesthesia, a 10 mm incision is made at the navel (umbilicus), CO2 is introduced to the cavity, then 2 more incisions are made in the abdomen (both of 5mm) to introduce the rest of the instruments, the hernia defect is detected, the hernia sac and its contents are brought back to the abdominal cavity, the whole area is disected and the mesh is introduced thorugh one of the incisions and placed in the groin region, then it is fixed with staples, incisions are closed with suture and the procedure is completed.
