  • As a general surgeon, I deal with all sorts of general surgical conditions. My special interest lies in Inguinal hernia surgery, which is one of the most common general surgical problem. I specialize in "Key-Hole" repair of inguinal hernia surgery, which has many advantages over the conventional open hernia surgery in terms of less pain & early recovery.

    I also specialize in key hole surgery of the gall bladder.

Question about Inguinal hernia

Is it painful to have inguinal hernia repair?

Is it painful to have inguinal hernia repair?
Sumeet Toshniwal General surgeon Melbourne
Every operation will cause some discomfort.It also depends wether you are having it with the old traditional technique, the open repair or the relatively new, laparoscopic (key- hole) repair. Open operation requires a bigger cut and also divides the nerves, this generally leads to a lot of discomfort and pain afterwards and a chronic pain in 8-10% cases. None of this happens with laparoscopic repair. Make sure you ask your surgeon, which technique is being offered to you. Hope this helps. Sumeet Toshniwal
