Surgical Technique (Simplified)

Under general anesthesia, a 5 mm abdominal incision is made at the left subcostal region (below the ribcage), CO2 is introduced to the abdominal cavity, then 4 more incisions are made in the abdomen (one of 10mm and the rest of 5mm) to introduce the rest of the instruments; the herniated stomach is returned to the abdominal cavity, the hernia sac is dissected and we proceed to close the hiatal defect using a biological mesh to reinforce the area, if GERD accompanies the hernia we perform an antireflux procedure also (See Laparoscopic Antireflux Surgery), incisions are closed with suture and the procedure is completed.
