The Benefits of Robotic Hernia Surgery

If you need hernia surgery, you may be envisioning a long recovery period. Fortunately, hernia surgery has made significant advancements in recent years, such as using robotic technology for hernia surgery. The surgeons at Suburban Surgical Associates and Suburban Metabolic Institute offer a wide range of surgical and metabolic services, including robotic hernia surgery. They have two convenient office locations in Hinsdale, and Elmhurst, IL.

What You Need To Know About Robotic Hernia Surgery

If you have a hernia, it means that tissue or an organ is protruding through the abdominal wall. Symptoms of a hernia can be excruciating, including:

  • Severe pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Fever

You can develop a hernia from:

  • Lifting heavy objects
  • Chronic diarrhea or constipation
  • Chronic coughing or sneezing

Traditionally hernia surgery was performed as open abdominal surgery, or laparoscopically. Technological advances have provided a third choice, which is robotic hernia surgery. Robotic hernia surgery utilizes small, wristed instruments, held by your surgeon. The movements of your surgeon’s hands guide and rotate the instruments, offering precise, small incisions. Robotic hernia surgery also uses high-definition imaging and injected dye, to provide your surgeon with a clearer, more precise view of the hernia and surrounding areas.

When you choose robotic surgery to repair a hernia, you will enjoy some important benefits. Consider that robotic hernia surgery is:

  • Much less invasive, because the surgery uses tiny incisions, with less risk of infection
  • Easier to recover from, with much less bleeding
  • More convenient, with a shorter hospital stay

When you are recovering from robotic hernia surgery, your surgeon will provide you with instructions on what you can do, and what you should avoid. It’s important to follow these instructions to allow the area to heal fully.
