Dr. Koeplin’s page is a very standard “minimally invasive” hernia repair page. Boilerplate text about strangulated hernias and death and types of hernias. The page does not mention mesh but laparoscopic procedures today all use mesh. So you will almost certainly get run-of-the-mill placement of a large piece of mesh, and most likely a piece on the other side also. There’s always something on the other side.

Good luck. They both look like “state-of-the-art” hernia repair surgeons. ~15% chance of chronic pain.
