In surgical repair surgery, the surgeon pushes the protruding tissue back into place and repairs the weakened area that allowed it to protrude. This may be done with surgical mesh or by using the patient's own tissue. Hernia surgery may be done as open abdominal surgery or as a laparoscopic procedure.
