Varies, depending on the specific type of hernia you have. In summary umbilical, epi and hypogastric hernias are repaired with the traditional “open” approach. And incisional hernias Dr. Rosales prefers to repair them, in almost every case, by the laparoscopic approach. The mesh (prosthetic material) used (if required) depends on the specific case.
