If you have a hernia and your doctor suggests surgery, it can be done using open surgery or minimally invasive surgery. During hernia surgery, the weak tissue in the wall of the stomach or groin is secured and any holes are closed.
If minimally invasive surgery is an option for you, ask your doctor about Robotic Surgery.
Why Robotic Surgery?
Early clinical data suggests that as a result of this technology, Robotic Ventral Hernia Surgery offers the following potential benefits:
- Low rate of the hernia returning
- Low rate of pain
- Low rate of surgeon switching to open surgery
- Short hospital stay
Robotic technology enables your surgeon to operate through a few small incisions (cuts), like traditional laparoscopy, instead of a large open incision. The robotic-assisted surgical device that your surgeon uses is 100% in control by the surgeon at all times. The Robotic Surgical System gives surgeons:
- A 3D HD view inside your body
- Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
- Enhanced vision, precision and control
