Preferred type of surgery?
I am researching for an inguinal hernia repair, and wondering which type of surgery is preferred. I’ve seen some evidence that ‘open’ seems to be slightly preferred by surgeons and patients. Is that the majority opinion at this point? Personally, I will probably have the open procedure, for a couple of reasons, including the avoidance of general anesthesia. I’m aware that general anesthesia is “perfectly safe”- so was sailing on the Titanic. Anybody here have any info on this point? Thanks.
