Robotic Hernia Surgery
Benefits of Robotic Hernia Repair
Many patients who undergo robotic hernia surgery benefit from a much faster recovery time than is required after open surgery. In fact, it’s possible to leave the hospital the same day as the procedure.
Patients also experience less pain and discomfort due to the precise nature of the procedure and the smaller instruments. Robotic hernia surgery is also more effective at preventing a hernia from happening again in the future.
Inguinal hernias are very common and occur when intestinal tissue pushes through the abdominal muscles. This can result in pain and discomfort, especially when bending over or coughing. While the hernia itself isn’t dangerous, it can cause other health complications. This is why they need to be treated by a doctor right away.
Surgery is the only option for inguinal hernias. During the procedure, a doctor repairs the weak area in the abdominal muscle and may sometimes need to apply mesh to ensure a hernia doesn’t occur in the future.
