Hernia repair surgery is one of the two main areas of our specialization. The surgical procedures used by our practice are based on the latest research and developments of hernia repair. As a result, surgery is now much less invasive, recovery time is significantly shorter and reoccurrence of a hernia is less likely.
Traditionally the focus of hernia surgery was only repair of the affected area. Recent research proved that restoration of the function of the entire abdominal wall is required for achieving the best outcomes for patients and improving quality of life. The techniques applied by Dr Mastakov aim to preserve the abdominal anatomy including nerves and blood vessels and realign muscles in accordance with their original connections. Reconstruction of the abdominal wall, where applicable, during the surgery includes restoration of the midline essential for supporting abdominal muscles and restoring the full functionality.
One approach will not fit all the defects, each surgery is optimally tailored to a patient’s anatomy and type or types of hernia. Years of experience in treating patients with different types of hernia allows Dr Mastakov to use various reconstructive techniques and tailored approach to each individual case. Details of the proposed surgery are explained to the patient prior to the procedure. Follow up care is also provided by the clinic to ensure each patient’s speedy recovery.
