Abdominal wall hernia: minimally invasive procedures

In general, for all inguinal and abdominal wall hernias, we use modern, minimally invasive surgical procedures with tiny skin incisions whenever possible. The hernia gap is permanently closed with a plastic mesh. Often only two to three millimeter small instruments (pinhole surgery) are required.
