New Hernia Repair Technique Developed for Quicker Recovery and Less Pain

Share Article

Dr. David Albin has modified the traditional tension-free hernia repair technique to get patients back to their everyday lives faster and with less pain than the traditional tension-free mesh technique.

Drawing upon his 20 years of hernia repair experience Dr. David Albin has modified the commonly used tension-free mesh hernia repair technique to provide patients with less pain and a quicker overall recovery.

The modified technique utilizes absorbable sutures in the more tender areas of the body, as well as using a larger piece of mesh. The larger mesh piece protects better against the hernia recurring while the absorbable sutures protect against post-operative hernia pain. With less tension inside the body and out, the patient experiences less pain throughout the recovery process and is able to return to their everyday activity faster and safer.

Developed as a result of being an avid triathlete competitor, five-time Ironman finisher and operating on many athletes like himself, Dr. David Albin knew there had to be a way to achieve less down-time for his patients due to pain and healing. So he modified the commonly used tension-free mesh hernia repair technique in order to provide his patients with a faster recovery time while experiencing less pain.

Another benefit of this procedure is that it is very simple to teach with a small learning curve, which Dr. Albin hopes will allow more surgeons to be open to learn and adopt so that all hernia repair patients may one day have a quicker, less painful recovery.
