Robotic Hernia Surgery

Hernia, the only disease that is cured surgically, grows over time and causes pain. All abdominal wall hernias should be repaired with a synthetic patch. 80 percent of abdominal wall hernias are seen in the groin. 10 percent consists of umbilical hernia. Most of the remaining 10% are incisional hernias and other rare hernias.

After hernia surgery, patients usually expect no post-operating theatre, no pain and a speedy return to life and work. They don't want scars. With the introduction of laparoscopic surgery in the last 20 years, and more recently, robotic surgery, significant advances have been made in hernia surgery. With the advances in technology Laparoscopic and Robotic Hernia Surgery, offers great comfort for both patients and doctors.

Minimally invasive techniques including laparoscopic and robotic surgery are used in hernia operations at Liv Hospital Hernia Center. Day surgery is performed successfully using cutting-edge patches.

What are the advantages of robotic surgery?

Surgeons using the robotic system have the advantage of better visualization of the surgical field with higher accuracy, flexibility and control during operation compared to conventional methods. Instruments used in the robotic system allow the surgeon the wrist's flexibility of movement of the inside the chest. Surgeons using the robotic surgery system can perform precise and complex procedures that may be difficult or impossible with other methods.  The benefits of minimally invasive surgery provided by robotic surgery are:
  • Reduced complication rate (eg wound infection)
  • Less Pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Faster recovery
  • Smaller and less noticeable incisions.
