  • Shouldice differences for inguinal direct vs indirect hernias

    I seem to have forgotten how Shouldice differs when the hernia is indirect vs direct…ate they almost the same surgery or there are some differences?

    I forget almost everything, which surgeon does what, who’s got good reviews, who does 2 layer, who does 4.

    From memory, and mine isn’t reliable, some surgeons will only do shouldice for one and not the other. Some will do for both.

    I’m sure there are differences but probably essentially the same.

    Not sure that’s helpful but best I can do. I’d be interested in the answers too so good question to ask.
