NEW Advanced Ways to Treat a Hernia


 Is Surgery Needed?

Surgery is generally the only hernia treatment option, it does not have to be considered the worst option. The procedures at Avalon Hernia are not only successful but convenient as well, as patients will be allowed to return home the same day! Hernias are repaired with either traditional open cut or minimally invasive techniques. Minimally invasive surgery offers a faster recovery time and patients will be able to return to work and normal activities with decreased pain sooner than those who undergo open surgery.

Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Options

Laparoscopic Hernia Repairs consist of fixing tears in the abdominal wall (muscle) with small incisions, telescopes, and a patch (mesh). This minimally invasive surgical technique will allow most patients to experience a faster recovery and faster turnaround to return to work and normal activities with decreased pain.

The Advantages of Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery are:

  • Minimal scaring and tiny incision

  • Patients go home within a few hours after surgery

  • In some cases a patient needs less than a week to recover

The doctor must conduct a thorough examination of all patients before he can determine laparoscopic hernia repair as the best surgical option. The procedure may not be fit for patients who have undergone previous abdominal surgery or have underlying medical conditions.

At Avalon Hernia, hernia specialists will keep your personal health as their number one concern throughout the entire process from your first consultation to your recovery after treatment or surgery.


Most patients will be able to return to normal activities within a couple days of surgery. However, different factors may affect an individual’s hernia recovery, and recovery time will vary from patient to patient. Patients should progressively return to normal activities but stop immediately if any pain occurs.

If pain continues, patients should contact our physicians. In order to ensure strong long-term health it is necessary to heal completely before straining the body.

Recovery times and activities should be discussed with the doctor to ensure maximum recovery. The experts at Avalon Hernia are committed to making this process as easy as possible from your first consultation to your recovery after treatment or surgery.
