Will you do both sides in the same operation hernia?

Only if it is in your best interest. If these hernias are small or of the easily managed type that require only the correction of the ring (inner door), then it is advisable to do both sides. Obviously, if the hernia is large and requires the rebuilding of an entire new wall, one side should not be pulling against the other. One approach is to repair the apparently more complicated hernia first and decide from that. It is not possible to answer this question in advance. If both sides cannot be repaired at the same time, then the other side can generally be operated on seven or eight days later.
