SAGES Inguinal Hernia Repair Patient Info – lap preferred, no mention of chronic pain
I’ve noticed that people trying to make decisions about hernia repair are using the SAGES web site for information. The information on the web site is surprisingly, almost shockingly, lacking about the current state of affairs in the field. Zero, absolutely no mention of the possibility of chronic pain, and a definite bias toward laparoscopic methods.
About 43,000 views at the time I was looking at it. It would actually be better for all, I think, if this web page didn’t exist. It gives a false sense of comfort about having a hernia repaired.
