      I am just wondering, is Shouldice also used for indirect hernias, and is this still ok?

      It’s quite clear that Shouldice is used either for direct or indirect hernia or both.

      @alephy
      A Shouldice will give a good result, but it is overkill for a small indirect hernia.

      Marcy with tightening of the internal ring (ringplasty).

      @DrBrown can you recommend some expert surgeon in ringplasty in North America and Europe?

      Pediatric surgeons are experts in non-mesh indirect hernia surgery. Often, they only ligate hernial sac, but sometimes they do a Marcy repair, if hole is too big. I once thought about hiring a pediatric surgeon. Their patients are mostly babies and children, but they can treat people until they’re 18, and these are physiologically and anatomically adults or near so. What do you think.
