Hyderabad, 25th November 2018: Hernia has an unseen and underappreciated adverse impact on society. Hernia Repairs have come a long way in the last century. The last decade has been a particularly exciting one as it ranged from Tissue Repair to Mesh Repair to newer and latest meshes. Also, some of us are now also talking of ‘No Mesh’ Repairs. In our country, most Hernia Repairs happen in a conventional, open technique method, and the time to recovery and return to work is significantly longer than in the case of a Minimally Invasive Approach.


The majority of hernias repaired in the “open” fashion have a very high potential to recur and will become a more complex issue. Thus, to discuss all the developments and trends taking place in the field of Hernia Repair, an International Conference on Hernia Repairs was held at Hyderabad, in association with AWR (Abdominal Wall Reconstruction) Surgeons’ Community on 24th and 25th of November. More than 400 delegates from across India and abroad participated in the conference to listen to experts on changing trends in Hernia Repair surgeries.


This conference was the most robust source of education in all a Hernia related cases, be it Subcutaneous Endoscopic Abdominal Wall Closure or Robotic Parastomal Surgery Repair. The conference also marked the origin of the 'AWR' (Abdominal Wall Reconstruction) Concept into South India, and nine collaborations with AWR Surgeons Community and IHC (International Hernia Collaboration). The Conference was attended by many eminent surgeons of the field, like the President of IHC, Dr. Brian Jacob from New Jersey, along with many surgeons from USA, Russia and our national leaders in Hernia Repair -  Dr. B. Ramana, Dr.Punjani, Dr. Nandakishore Dukkipati, and others.


Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Nandakishore Dukkipati, Spokesperson of the Conference, said, “Several hundreds of hernia surgeries happen every week in Hyderabad. Most repairs are done using the conventional, open technique. We have organized this Conference to train both the Interns as well as Specialists about the latest treatment techniques in the field. Statistically, more hernias are seen among women, and one of the relatively common areas in women are Caesarean Section and family planning surgery areas on the abdomen.”


“Many know that hernias develop with time and age, but very few understand that there is a chance of developing hernia because of open surgery. In India, lakhs of such open surgeries are being performed annually in India for various reasons like C-section, surgery for cancer, liver surgery, etc. The common treatment for a hernia is a surgery. But, gone are the days of open and basic laparoscopic repair of hernias. The technique in Hernia Surgery is called 'Endoscopic Sandwich Hernia Repair’. This procedure can be performed in a minimally invasive manner or with a robot. Robotic Hernia Repair gives far more visual clarity on anatomy and helps in a more precise surgical process. Better knowledge regarding hernias, better surgical principles, understanding the latest methodology and implementing the same are the need of the hour in the world of hernias,” Dr. Nandakishore said.


Hyderabad based Livlife hospitals, headed by Dr. Nandakishore Dukkipati is a Tertiary Referral Center for such complex and recurrent hernia repairs with these latest techniques and robotics.
