Hernia may occur in any part of your body including groin, brain, diaphragm, abdomen, or any area that was previously operated. Umbilical hernias in new born babies get cured naturally within 4 years and do not need any medical assistance. However, all other cases need to be treated with medicines and Hernia surgery.
Hernias do not cause much discomfort at the beginning and therefore some people tend to postpone these operations. Here is when complexities arise. Prolonged hernias cause the organ to get strangulated. This leads to internal swelling and infection. In very rare cases, these infections become fatal.Here is a list of Hernia Surgery Costs in various cities of India.

Herniorraphy (Hernia Surgery) is not a very complex surgical treatment. These are usually ambulatory procedures involving local or general anesthesia. However, if strangulation occurs, then some additional steps are required to cut and eliminate the oxygen starved part of that organ.
There are multitude of reasons that cause hernia. Lifting heavy things that strain the belly walls may lead to hernia. Those suffering from chronic constipation or enlarged prostate glands that causes difficulties in bowel movements and urination may also develop hernia. Extra body weight, fluid in the abdomen or family history etc. are some additional reasons behind this disorder.
The cost of Hernia surgeries vary, depending upon hospital, type of operation; that can be open or laproscopic, size of hernias and the area affected. However, an approximate amount lies between INR 18,000 to INR 30,000 for open surgeries. While for laproscopic surgeries, the starting amount is INR 40,000.
Several weeks are required to recover from this surgery. Use of ice packs for 3 - 5 times a day proves to be helpful for quick recovery. This needs to last for 15 - 20 minutes only. Patients should resume showers only after medical advice. Slow but regular walks are important to avoid stiffness.
