Robotic Hernia Repair

Research indicates that people who have hernia repair with the da Vinci® surgical robot go home from the hospital sooner and, therefore, return to regular activities faster than those who have laparoscopic or open surgery.

Robotic Hernia Repair

During robotic hernia repair surgery, your surgeon will make a few small incisions on your abdomen for the surgical tools and a high-definition camera that will give a three dimensional, magnified look at your hernia. He or she will use a console next to you to repair the hernia.

The benefit of robotic surgery for your hernia repair is less pain and blood loss, and less disruption to their daily activities. In addition, 86 percent of patients reported lower use of pain medication after surgery.
