This chapter describes the repair of uncomplicated primary inguinal, femoral and paraumbilical herniae in adults. Recurrent herniae, laparoscopic repairs and other more complicated hernia repairs are not discussed as we feel that it would be inappropriate for an SHO or GP to undertake these procedures. Only one safe and effective method of repair is described for each hernia. More comprehensive texts will need to be consulted for descriptions of other repairs.
