Hernia is common problem of the society which involve 20% - 25% of the population. It is one of the diseases diagnosed by the patients themselves. A surgeon's responsibility is to treat the hernia effectively without any complication, especially without recurrence. All of us are well aware about the open hernia repair, as it is first surgery given to the postgraduates during their initial surgical training. Most of them practice open Liechtenstein repair which is an anterior repair. On the contrary, Laparoscopic Hernia Repair is posterior repair where the anatomy is entirely different. This is the only surgery where your open surgery knowledge will not be of much help during Laparoscopic hernia repair. This is the major reason for a long learning curve for laparoscopic hernia repair.
