Almost all hernias can be repaired this way. But there are certain situations where traditional surgery is more suited:

  • Patients who cannot be administered general anaesthesia
  • Those who have had radiation treatment in the area of the hernia
  • Those who have pus in the hernia
  • Critical conditions where the intestine has got strangulated in the hernia and blood circulation has been obstructed
  • Those with very large hernias
  • Those who cannot undergo major surgeries because of serious medical condition
