In this case, Dr. Alvear performs a bilateral open inguinal hernia repair on the second of two twin babies while on a surgical mission with the World Surgical Foundation in the Philippines. On one side, the ovary was trapped within the hernia sac. Here, Dr. Alvear demonstrates his technique for preserving the ovary in this setting, which is effective, much quicker, and much safer with fewer complications for anesthesia.
