Diaphragmatic Hernia or hiatal hernia is repaired laparoscopically. As space is limited in hiatal region, laparoscopy provides an excellent vision and is much superior to conventional repair overcoming all its limitations with adequate instrumentation.
The Surgeon repositions the abdominal organs that have slipped into the chest cavity back into the abdomen and closes the hole in the diaphragm that has caused the condition.
The repair may have to be combined with an anti-reflux procedure such as Nissen Fundoplication.
