Recurrence repair should be done by a hernia specialist.
Typically repeat repair is not done through same approach (typically). If an open repair is done and recurs then you approach via a posterior (MIS aka lap or robotic approach) and vice versa. That’s a basic tenet but not always applicable. It requires a lot of thought and risk assessment by the surgeon.
