Closed ( Laparoscopic ) Inguinal Hernia
Laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery is a type of surgery that is done by making three small cuts under the belly button and putting special tools and patches on the inside of the abdominal wall. With the help of a special camera that is put into the abdomen, this surgery treats an inguinal hernia by giving a picture that is 40 times bigger than the normal surgery. Inguinal hernias are fixed by putting special patches behind the abdominal muscles and stapling or gluing these patches to the abdominal wall. Also, a big benefit of closed (laparoscopic) inguinal hernia surgeries is that if the patient has two inguinal hernias, only three 0.5 cm incisions are needed to reach both of them.

If the first operation was done with an open method, this is the best way to treat a recurring inguinal hernia.
