african price " Cost of Laparoscopy in Nigeria

Oh!!! thanks to improved medical research and technological advancement. Once upon a time, quite a number of gynecological surgeries done in Nigeria were through cutting wide open the abdomen to get access to the ovaries, womb, uterus, or fallopian tubes amongst others which can now be done laparoscopically. 

Recall that in the past, this technique was not so readily available, but today, the feasibility of laparoscopic or “keyhole” surgery in Nigerian hospitals has taken root.

How Much Does Hernia Surgery Cost in Nigeria 

A Hernia is a protrusion of an internal organ (especially the intestines) from the cavity in which it is enclosed through an abnormal or weak opening in the wall of the cavity. It is a very common condition encountered in surgical practice. 

The cost of complicated hernia surgery in Nigeria is around N120,000 – N150,000 naira in Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), and University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), State Hospitals and Federal Medical Centres across the country.

While surgery on uncomplicated hernia is around N70,000 – N80,000. Some hospitals may collect as “low” as N60,000 in some cases depending on the location. 

On the other hand, the amount of money you will pay for an inguinal hernia operation is less if you decide to do the surgery as soon as you are diagnosed.

Types of Hernia in Nigeria

Inguinal Hernia 

This accounts for 80-92% of hernias. Presents as swelling in the groin. It can easily get complicated. Commoner in men than women.

Umbilical Hernia 

This is common in children. Protrusion through the umbilicus. It is genetic and very common among blacks.

Incisional Hernia 

It is a protrusion through an abnormal/poorly healed surgical scar. Very common in Nigeria because of our high rate of laparotomies (open abdominal surgeries).

Femoral Hernia

Common in women. Not common in Nigeria.
