Hernia Repair

Minimally invasive hernia repair is an innovative, technically challenged method of treating hernias using a laparoscope (a thin tube with a tiny video camera at its tip) to guide the surgeon through images projected on a television monitor. Minimally invasive hernia surgery can often provide superior outcomes to traditional open surgery in less time, with smaller scars, and with less discomfort for patients.

Minimally invasive hernia repair procedures have grown in popularity in recent years due to the benefits they provide and in certain instances have surpassed the effectiveness and efficiency of conventional surgical methods. A doctor may recommend minimally-invasive hernia repair because:

  • It may cause less pain than an open hernia repair
  • It could allow the patient to return to work and a healthy lifestyle more quickly
  • It can allow easier repair of multiple hernias through the same incisions

Our surgical team has extensive training in minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery and have developed extensive skills in minimally invasive hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction. They are excited to bring innovative, cutting-edge hernia repair care to our local community.

The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Hernia Repair

Minimally invasive hernia repair techniques involve smaller incisions and utilize the latest state-of-the-art technology. By using these techniques surgeons are able to achieve better results than previous methods could attain.

The benefits of minimally invasive hernia repair include:

  • Less discomfort following surgery
  • Decreased scarring
  • Lower infection rates
  • Better cosmetic results
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery times and return to normal activities

Not all patients are candidates for minimally invasive surgery. Specific factors need to be taken into consideration, including:

  • Previous infection at the site of the hernia
  • Prior abdominal surgery
  • Extreme obesity
  • Significant scar tissue from previous abdominal surgery
  • The surgeon has difficulty viewing a patient’s internal organs with the laparoscope

Consultation with one’s surgeon is critical to deciding on the best surgical technique to yield optimal results. If you’re interested in minimally invasive hernia surgery please feel free to call the office or contact us here.
