Hi. First of all you should understand that only treatment of hernia is surgery. Mesh is placed (not gauge) during surgery to prevent recurrence. Mesh size depends upon hernia defect and type of mesh is decided on the basis of surgery performed. You can go for open conventional surgery which should cost around 30000 including prolene mesh or you can opt for laparoscopic repair which will be costly as mesh used here is expensive (starting from 25000) making surgery cost around 80000.
