Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Surgery

General Surgeon Dr. Michael Zadeh MD offers Laparoscopic Hernia Repair ... for a 'Deal of the Day' price of $4250

This offer applies to the repair of the various types of hernias. The fee represents only the surgeon's fee and includes your initial consultation, the procedure, and up to three (3) post-operative follow up visits. It does not include any pre-operative laboratory work, etc. that may be required prior to surgery. Facility and anesthesia fee's need to be negotiated separately. Our office may assist you in this process if needed.

The surgery is often performed laparoscopically in the right candidates, however there is always the possiblity of conversion to an open procedure. During your initial consultation the procedure will be discussed with you in detail along with your surgical options.

For more detail, please review all the following material:
  • This offering is only applicable if you are experiencing symptoms of a hernia. Some of these symptoms include:
    • Bulge under the skin in the groin (inguinal), naval (umbilical) area, or sites of previous operations (incisional)
    • Pain when lifting, coughing or straining while urinating or having bowel movements.
    • What is a Hernia and What Causes a Hernia? A hernia is a weakness or tear in the abdominal wall. organs. Generally a hernia forms a bulge as the intestine pushes into a sac. If the bulge flattens when you push against it or lie down, it is called a reducible hernia. There is no immediate danger and hernia repair is necessary. A hernia where the bulge cannot be flattened is called a nonreducible hernia. If the intestine is trapped it is called incarcerated. Often there is pain and prompt surgery is needed. Intestines that become tightly trapped or strangulated lose blood supply and die. Stangulated intestines can block digestion. The pain can be severe. Immediate surgery is needed to correct the blockage and repair the hernia.
    • What Can I Expect to Happen Before Having Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Surgery? -Preoperative tests may be ordered depending upon your medical condition and the type of anesthesia planned for your surgery. -Blood tests, electrocardiogram (EKG) or chest x-ray may be ordered depending on your age and medical condition.
    • What Happens if Surgery Cannot be Performed by Laparoscopic Technique? Sometimes it is not possible for the surgeon to use the laparoscopic technique because it may be difficult to see or handle tissue safely. The surgeon decides to perform an open procedure either before or during the surgery. The surgeon may decide to convert the laparoscopic surgery to an open procedure in certain situations and for patient safety. Though very infrequent, when conversion to an open technique occurs, it should not be considered a failure of the procedure. Factors that might increase the possibility of changing to an "open" procedure are obesity, previous abdominal surgery causing dense scar tissue, inability to see organs or bleeding during surgery.

    In the unlikely even that we need to revert to an open technique, no additional charge will be added.
