No Mesh Hernia Repair Monmouth County
Hernia Repair in Monmouth County, Jersey Shore, and West Long Branch NJ
A hernia is a weakness that develops in the abdominal wall, compromising the integrity of muscles and forming an opening there – thus leading to a protrusion of abdominal tissues or even intestines. If left untreated, the hernia can trigger severe health complications such as infections or loss of blood to the intestines. Surgical intervention is needed in order to repair the opening and avert more detrimental health complications. Surgeons work to close the weakened abdominal wall and provide additional support either using a mesh or the body’s own tissues.

Different Types of Hernia Repair
There are two types of hernia repair surgery:
- Mesh Hernia Repair – Surgeons use a mesh material that can be created from animal tissue or synthetic material to reinforce the weakened abdominal wall. If the mesh is created from animal tissue, then it may be absorbable. If it is created from a synthetic material, then it may be absorbable or nonabsorbable. The major issue with this approach is that it leaves a foreign material in the body that may be rejected leading to chronic pain and other complications.
- No Mesh Hernia Repair – This entails treating a hernia without using a mesh. This approach requires extensive surgical experience in order to achieve a successful closure of the affected abdominal wall tissues. Since no foreign object is left in the patient’s body, some of the complications associated with mesh repair are not an issue with this option.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Rahul Vemula, he will discuss treatment options as well as complications and risks associated with each method. The majority of Dr. Vemula’s Monmouth County hernia surgery patients prefer no-mesh treatment because it offers distinct advantages over mesh hernia surgery.
