Repair of Diaphragm/ Diaphragmatic Hernias

Diaphragmatic hernia direct repair with a tension-free suture is generally attempted; in case of very large defects or when a tension-free suture is deemed unfeasible, the use of prosthesis is recommended.
The surgeon usually makes a cut (incision) in the belly under the upper ribs. This allows the organs in the area to be reached. The surgeon gently pulls these organs down into place through the opening in the diaphragm and into the abdominal cavity.
Patient will be able to get back home on the next day of hernia surgery. You will be able to return to work within 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. You can undertake strenuous activity or exercising after 6 weeks.
