A hernia is usually treated with surgery and there are three main types of surgery open hernia repair, robotic hernia repair, and laparoscopic repair. The most common surgery preferred by doctors and patients is Laparoscopic Surgery. In this surgery, a thin telescope-like instrument is inserted through a small incision at the belly button.
