How robotic surgery from your surgeon in La Grange, Elmhurst, and Berwyn, IL, can help you
Robotic surgery is at the forefront of medical techniques. It requires a high level of skill from your surgeon. Robotic surgery is used to perform abdominal wall reconstruction, among other procedures. The general surgeons at Suburban Surgical Associates/Suburban Metabolic Institute offer comprehensive general and specialty surgical services, including robotic surgery to repair the abdominal wall. They have convenient office locations in La Grange, Elmhurst, and Berwyn, IL.
You may need abdominal wall reconstruction to repair damaged portions of the abdominal wall. One of the most common medical conditions affecting the abdominal wall is a hernia. A hernia occurs when an organ, such as a portion of intestine, protrudes through a weakened area of the abdominal wall. You may also want or need abdominal wall reconstruction to repair sagging or distended abdominal tissue due to pregnancy, aging, or other issues.
Abdominal wall reconstruction is often performed using robotics. Robotic surgery offers several important advantages like these:
- It’s minimally invasive, using a much smaller incision than conventional surgery
- Recovery is easier and quicker because there is less pain after surgery
- The chance of infection is far less because there is less blood loss
Most people can take short walks within 3 to 5 days after surgery. Recovery from abdominal wall surgery requires about 2 to 5 weeks, but you should avoid strenuous activity while you heal from surgery. Consult with your surgeon before you begin any exercise program.
Remember to allow yourself time to heal. You should:
- Rest when you are tired
- Try to walk every day
- Avoiding lifting and straining for at least 6 weeks
