Hernia is treated by open surgery and Laparoscopic surgery. In both the surgeries a non-absorbable mesh is fixed over the defect after reducing the hernial contents back into the abdomen.

Open surgery is the conventional one which is being done for decades. A small incision is made and hernia is reduced and mesh is fixed. Advantages: Less expensive, can be done anywhere no specialised equipment needed. Disadvantages: Longer hospital stay, Wound healing takes longer as well as pain.
