Left Flank Hernia”Rare”

1. Traumatic hernias are notoriously difficult to repair
2. These hernia repairs must include mesh. Tissue repair is not an option. It will fail and there will be even more muscle tears, making the subsequent repair even more difficult.
3. I perform these robotically. Laparoscopic repair is also very good. Open repair is not my preferred method, but is also a good option. It all depends on your surgeon’s preference, the size of the hernia defect, and so on.
