He really knows his stuff - several friends of mine with other doctors did not get anywhere near the detail or accuracy of advice that I got from him through pregnancy. I'm going back to him for my 2nd!"

I am sure you would be aware that any surgery would see some degree of discomfort in the recovery process.
Key hole surgery in general provides a shorter route in terms of recovery back to work. Many surgeons do perform this as their preferred option- but there is a role for the open procedure as well.

However the other relevant questions would be what kind of work you do and have you had any previous surgery.

There are specific risks tailored to both options however this would require further discussion with your specialist. Both procedures carry a ≤ 1 % risk of recurrence when done by specialists.
