Treating hernia without surgery is not quite effective. Surgery is suggested for anyone suffering from inguinal hernia. Generally, doctors do not suggest surgery as an option to people who have incarcerated hernia or suffer from bleeding disorders such as haemophilia or idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). However, it is advisable to opt for a Laparoscopic surgery instead of open hernia repair. Laparoscopic surgeries are less painful and the chances of a hernia coming back after the surgery are as low as 1 out of 100. A laparoscopic repair requires several small incisions instead of a single larger cut. Studies have found that these surgeries are more effective than open cut repair and help the patients return to their normal routine after 10-15 days.
