As far as I am aware NICE have not published on parastomal hernia repairs. The procedure itself can be performed with open or laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery. Most surgeons would use a laparoscopic approach. This usually requires 24-48 hours in hospital with a 2-4 week recovery. There are a number of different techniques used to carry out the repair. Most have the same outcome which unfortunately carries quite a high recurrence rate (5-30%)
