Robotic Hernia Surgery
Inguinal hernias 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. At Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Flower Mound, our doctors specialize in robotic-assisted hernia surgery using the da Vinci System. This offers patients a less invasive solution than open surgery.
Benefits of Robotic Hernia Repair
Patients who undergo hernia repair with the da Vinci System 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-assisted inguinal hernia surgery is also more effective at preventing the issue from happening in the future.
