My Son was admitted with a very rare autoimmune illness in April this year. The care he was given was superb Prof Dheda, Prof Louw and their team of specialists covered every possibility , diagnosed efficiently and treated effectively. There was time taken to explain everything. The Hospital Matron made allowances for me to spend as much as possible time with my son and also allowed for frequent visits from close family. Mr Daniel Mathew the Hospital General manager is very approachable and interested . The staff was friendly and helpful. Basically every one from reception through admin to ICU was friendly and helpful. I Highly recommend this hospital

    What you need to know about Incisional Hernia Repair in South Africa

    Open Incisional Hernia Repair

    An incisional hernia may occur along or near surgical scars in the abdomen. They usually do not cause any issues, but they may get bigger over time. However, when the incisional hernia is getting larger or causing problems, they need to be operated on with a procedure known as incisional hernia repair.

    What does a Incisional Hernia Repair Procedure Involve?

    There are two different techniques for performing incisional hernia repair, open surgery, and laparoscopic surgery, both are performed under general anesthetic. In open surgery, your surgeon cuts the abdomen open and closes the gap that the hernia protrudes through from the outside, and then a mesh is placed on it to strengthen it. In laparoscopic surgery, your surgeon makes several small incisions to insert surgical instruments and a tiny tube with a camera attached to it (laparoscope).

    How Long Should I Stay in South Africa for a Incisional Hernia Repair Procedure?

    You are usually required to stay in the hospital for one to three days, but in some cases, you may be able to leave the hospital on the same day. However, you are not allowed to travel long-distance right after you have been discharged. You will need to stay in South Africa for around 7 to 14 days or until your surgeon says you can fly home. During your stay, you will attend follow-up hospital checkups so your doctor can monitor your condition and remove the stitches.
