Shouldice Surgery (No Mesh Repair)
The Shouldice hernia repair surgery differs from other mainstream methods because it is a slower, more detailed process. In the hands of our experienced surgeons, this delicate hernia surgery is one of the safest and most effective methods for repairing the damage caused by a hernia. The surgery is usually performed under only a local anaesthetic, which helps to keep costs and recovery time down.
Because the incision for the Shouldice repair method is slightly longer than other hernia repair methods, surgeons have a better view of the procedure. This allows them to investigate the nearby areas and prevent any future nearby hernias, which is not rare.
The artificial mesh used in many other types of hernia surgeries tends to shrink over time and, because of its placement, is subject to a lot of pulling and stretching. Rather than relying on artificial mesh, we allow the body to heal itself by overlapping your own muscle and tissue, which reduces pulling from tension during the repair.

Other Mesh-Based Surgery Methods
Open Repair (using artificial mesh)
In open surgery, the incision is made at the groin or near the hernia. The protrusion is identified and pushed back into the abdomen. The defect is then stuffed with a wad of plastic or sealed with a sheet plastic mesh.
Laparoscopic Surgery (using artificial mesh)
A thin telescope tube containing a camera, light, and surgical instruments at one end is inserted into the patient's body through a very small incision. The protrusion is identified and pushed back into the abdomen. The defect is then stuffed with a wad of plastic with or sealed with a sheet of plastic mesh.
Disadvantages of Surgeries Using Artificial Mesh
- High recurrence rates
- Increasing risk of inadvertent injury to nerves and blood vessels.
- Shrinkage of artificial mesh by 16-30% overtime, causing recurrence of hernia.
- The Shouldice repair technique has follow up recurrence rates (<0.5%) over decades of study.
