Laparoscopic hernia repair is a relatively new surgical technique to fix tears in the abdominal wall using small incisions, a patch and special cameras to view inside the body. It frequently offers a more rapid recovery for the patient, less postoperative pain, and a quicker return to work and normal activities. (LapSurg.org).
