    The Marcy repair is a great option for children and women with very small inguinal hernias. It’s an old technique that has been around for over 50 years. I use it in specifically those situations. It is not appropriate for direct inguinal hernias or in most male hernias.

    I believe Dr Kang’s repair for indirect inguinal hernias is a modified Marcy repair as well.
