SO WHEN WOULD KEYHOLE HERNIA SURGERY BE RECOMMENDED?
If there has been a previous failed open repair, particularly if mesh was used ‘unsuccessfully’ or perhaps, inexpertly.
In certain incisional hernia cases where laparoscopy is deemed more appropriate
In certain cases involving hernia on both sides (a bilateral hernia) and both are to be repaired at the same time
On a per-case basis where it is felt that the balance of factors indicate that laparoscopy would be the better option
