    6th Right Inguinal Hernia

    That discussion should be with your surgeon. The choice to remove hernia mesh is very much tailored to each patient’s specific needs. I typically remove mesh for pain or infection reasons. Recurrent hernias may need mesh removal only if it’s a redo redo. Otherwise if it’s a failure of a laparoscopic hernia, then an open repair is indicated the second time usually. If there is yet another recurrence and lap/robotic is chosen, then sometimes that mesh may need to be removed.
