Robotic Inguinal Hernia Repair
Robotic Inguinal Hernia Repair by Dr. Razdan
Less Pain with a smaller incision!
Thanks to innovations in robotic technology, Dr. Razdan is able to perform hernia repair surgery through tiny incisions rather than the large incisions associated with traditional open surgery. The result is less damage to surrounding tissues, less pain for the patient and a much quicker recovery—often within days.
Robotic surgery techniques have been used for years to provide advanced treatment for urologic conditions. Now, Dr. Sanjay Razdan applies the same technology to other types of procedures, including hernia repair.
With one of the largest experience in simultaneous Robotic Prostatectomy and Inguinal Hernia Repair, Dr. Razdan has extended his repertoire to include patients with Inguinal Hernias. These patients can now be treated with Robotic Inguinal Hernia Repair on an outpatient basis.
What exactly is a hernia?
Hernias are caused when an organ squeezes through a tear or weak spot in the tissue that surrounds it. Common locations for hernias include the groin, belly button and previous surgery scars. Hernia repair surgery involves returning the organ to its proper place and fixing the tears in the surrounding tissue.
Robotic surgery provides a number of advantages over traditional open surgery and standard laparoscopic procedures. While open surgery offers a full view of the abdomen and the ability to work freely inside the affected area, it requires a large incision through muscle and tissue. This type of incision can be more painful and take longer to heal.
The advantages of Robotic inguinal Hernia Repair include:
- A small incision. An incision that is the about the size of a pencil eraser reduces scarring, recovery time, blood loss and risk of infection.
- Better visibility. Using a high definition, 3-D camera provides the surgeon with better visibility than laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery.
- Increased precision. The wristed robotic arms have a greater range of motion than a human hand. This allows the surgeon to maneuver instruments in ways that deliver the best surgical results.
