      Dear Dr. Towfigh, I have a couple questions about the laparoscopic suture repair.

      Are you the only surgeon who does laparoscopic suture repair?

      Do the sutures go through all muscle layers? If yes, how does one make sure that the nerves on the other side of the abdominal wall are not hit? Or is this just one of the risks?

      Thanks, Paul.

      As far as I know, Dr. Brian Jacob also has performed this procedure. I am not sure if others have yet, but perhaps with time that may increase.

      With my technique, I do not include all muscle layers, as there is a risk of trapping the nerves anteriorly.
