      I am wondering, if one goes for laparoscopic surgery, and they find the inguinal hernia to be indirect, can they there and then decide to not use any mesh and “stitch” up the inguinal ring only?

      Or is it the case that once in laparoscopically only mesh can be used?

      I believe only a few surgeons right now are capable of doing any kind of tissue repair laparoscopically, behind the muscle. And I believe there are some potential pitfalls with that. Dr. Towfigh I think can do it, and she mentioned one or two others.
