In principle, all of the repair methods that are currently available may be offered to you. However, not every inguinal hernia operation is suitable for every patient.
Given the very varied intra-operative findings that can occur in terms of the hernia type and tissue characteristics, the surgical technique is tailored to the patient's individual requirements.
This is known as "tailored surgery". What matters most is that the individual properties of the tissue involved and the nature of the hernia are taken fully into account when determining the choice of surgical procedure.
Wherever possible, every attempt is made to operate without a mesh implantation (avoidance of foreign body material). At our facility, the proportion of mesh-free operations is 60-70%.
