Laparoscopic Hernia Repairs
When doing a laparoscopic hernia repair should the groin area be shaved? If the procedure goes as planned, there are no incisions in the groin. If the patient needs to be opened to do the repair, the incision will often be right in the groin area usually covered with hair. Is it okay to shave while the field is already prepped and draped, or is it best to just go ahead and open, without shaving at all?
