Experience of more than 20,000 hernia repair surgery cases.
The unique “The Integrative Hernioplasty®“: uses natural tissue to repair hernia and reduce the use of foreign implants.
Healing patients with hernias from more than 40 countries.
Natural tissue repairs hernia, reduces the use of mesh and avoids foreign implants that cause foreign body sensation or rejection.
Minimally invasive small incisions, only about 2-4 cm, allow quick recovery and reduce scarring.
Most patients can be discharged from the hospital and can be discharged about six hours after surgery.
Local anesthesia is used in combination with sedation and sleep to reduce the risk and side effects of general anesthesia.
No need of urinary catheters after surgery. Patients can get out of bed or eat after waking up.
The real cure: 3D stereo muscle suture repair allows patients to return to normal activities after surgery.
Low recurrence rate: only 0.2%

Comparison between traditional hernia surgery and new minimally invasive surgery
New minimally invasive hernia surgery
Local anesthesia + intravenous sedation Local anesthesia is only required for the surgical site, and the safety is higher than regional and general anesthesia. Intravenous sedation is administered during surgery, and patients can sleep comfortably during the surgery.
Traditional surgery requires regional or general anesthesia, and the risk of anesthesia is high, especially in those with advanced age and poor cardiopulmonary function.
0.2%，low recurrence rate
The recurrence rate for traditional tissue repair method is about 5-10%, 2-3% for mesh repair, and 3-7% for laparoscopic hernia repair.
The size of the wound for the traditional tissue repair method and artificial omental patch technique is about 5-10 cm while the size of the wound for endoscopic surgery is about three 1-2 cm incisions.
Most surgeries do not need implantation of foreign objects (reducing the permanent implantation of foreign artificial omentum).
In about 95% of traditional surgeries, foreign objects are used for reconstruction.
Length of stays
→Recovery time is fast Can eat immediately after surgery. Can get up and walk immediately after surgery. Can get up and use the toilet immediately after surgery. Can be discharged six hours after surgery (can also choose to recuperate and be discharged on the day after surgery). Can resume exercise three weeks after surgery.
Traditional surgery requires hospitalization for 2-3 days. Must fast for 8 hours after surgery. Must lie down for 8 hours after surgery. Ten to twenty percent of patients may have to have a catheter inserted. Discharged the next day or two days after surgery. Strenuous exercise can be done three months after surgery.
Painless or low degree of pain
Traditional postoperative: Low to moderate degree of pain
