Robotic Inguinal Hernia Repair Surgery in NYC
What is robotic inguinal hernia repair?
An inguinal hernia occurs in the lower abdomen or groin area. Typically, it is repaired using laparoscopic or open surgical techniques, however, it can also be restored using robotic hernia repair. This involves inserting a robotic tool into the lower abdominal area to repair the damaged portion of the abdominal wall where the hernia occurred.
Robotic inguinal hernia repair can result in less pain, less scarring, and quicker recovery than open surgery. If you require a robotic inguinal hernia repair, schedule a consultation with Dr. Mark Reiner in NYC. Dr. Reiner is an expert in laparoscopic and robotic hernia repair, having performed over 2,500 successful hernia surgeries in his lifetime. Dr. Reiner is also a Professor of Surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, one of the best hospitals in the country.
Why is robotic inguinal hernia repair performed?
Robotic inguinal hernia repair is sometimes a better option for patients who are seeking a quicker recovery and less visible scar placement. This procedure, especially in some cases of recurrent inguinal hernia repairs, gives better visualization because of its 3D optics, reducing potential difficulties encountered when doing recurrent inguinal hernia repairs. You may be a good candidate for robotic assisted inguinal hernia repair if you suffer from any of the following symptoms of an inguinal hernia:
- Groin pain or discomfort (especially when you cough, bend over, or lift heaving objects)
- Pressure in the groin area
- Weakness in groin area
- A bulge or lump near the pubic bone
- Aching or burning sensation near bulge
What does robotic inguinal hernia surgery involve?
Before surgery, you will be given an anesthetic to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. During the robotic surgery, your doctor will make very small incisions into your lower abdomen, through which a special robotic tool will be inserted. The tool uses precise targeting to repair the hernia and then solidify the abdominal wall to prevent future hernias.
After the procedure, your surgeon will discuss the next steps for your recovery process and will inform you about when you can return to regular activities and sports.
