A Hernia is a sac formation due to weakness in the abdominal muscles. A Hernia occurs when the contents of a body cavity bulge out of the area where they are normally contained. Any activity that increases pressure on the abdominal area can worsen a hernia.

We at Healing Hands Clinic provides the best treatment for Hernia. The clinic is certified as “Center of Excellence in 3D Mesh Hernia Repair” by Dr. John Murphy. Dr. Deepak Kulkarni is the leading Hernia surgeon in Kondhwa Pune and has operated more than 1000 successful such cases of Hernia with advanced 3D Mesh technique. Surgery is the only best option for the treatment of Hernia.

Hernia Causes:

The main cause of Hernia is any activity that increases the pressure of the abdominal cavity over a prolonged period of time. These include:

• Persistent cough
• Straining during a bowel movement or long-term constipation.
• Lifting heavyweights
• Poor nutrition.
• Physical exertion


• It appears as a lump or bulge in the abdominal area. The lump increases in size on standing, coughing and may be pushed back on lying down.
• If left untreated, hernia usually increases in size.
• The loop of bowel that has herniated becomes obstructed. This can cause extreme pain, nausea, vomiting, constipation and needs immediate treatment.
• At times the hernia becomes 'strangulated' in which the person appears ill with/without fever, nausea, vomiting and extreme pain.

Treatment for Hernia – 3D Mesh Repair – The Game Changer:

Surgery is one of the most common solutions for Hernia repair with millions of cases being treated every year. In the pre mesh era recurrence rate of Hernia was up to 30%. Efforts to tackle this issue led to the invention of 3D mesh repair. The technique uses a Polypropylene mesh that covers the hernia defect from 3 sides; above, below and center. This tension-free repair is suitable for treating large sized and even recurrent hernias.

Benefits of 3D Mesh Repair:

• Minimal number of stitches
• It provides the benefits of strong posterior repair like a laparoscopic procedure
• There is no groin pain as stitches are not taken to fix the mesh
• Negligible recurrence rate
• Can be done under local anesthesia
• Daycare procedure – a patient is discharged from the hospital within 24 hours
• Shorter recovery time compared to older techniques.

At Healing Hands Clinic, all the hernia surgeries are performed by highly qualified experienced surgeons. Till date, more than 3500 cases of hernia have been successfully treated by our experts at all the centers including Pune, Mumbai, Thane, Nashik, and Bengaluru.
