Ilioinguinal Nerve Block

So the ilioinguinal nerve block is often used for abdominal pain that is mostly localized to the surface of the abdomen. This is often seen with patients who have undergone hernia repair and they have a mesh that’s placed for the hernia repair which in fact, makes a stronger repair, but oftentimes what we have seen is that patients develop pain in the same region. By doing an ilioinguinal nerve block, we are able to alleviate that pain and control the symptoms so the patients have a more productive life.
