What location will I visit for my hernia surgery?

Surgical experts answering your questions related to General Surgery, Breast Surgery, Bariatric Surgery and other related topics.


Patients often have the choice of hernia surgery performed in in-patient or outpatient settings.

Having a hernia repair surgery performed in a hospital as an inpatient will cost much more than having the surgery done in an outpatient center. Counsel with your doctor on which option is best for your unique needs and situation.

Recovery time may vary depending on the type of hernia surgery you receive. Common procedures include Open Repair and Laparoscopic Hernia Repair. Open repair surgery is done through an incision in the area of the hernia. Laparoscopic Hernia Repair is similar, but requires a smaller incision.

Recovery is usually faster with laparoscopic surgery. On average, patients are back to their normal routine a week sooner than with open surgery.
