Each of our surgeons is specially trained in laparoscopic surgery techniques to correct all types of hernias. These laparoscopic techniques offer the added benefits of a shorter operating time, less pain, and shorter recovery.
What is laparoscopic hernia repair?
Older surgical techniques for hernia repair involved placing a longer incision, and due to the level of tissue trauma, required a longer recovery. Laparoscopic hernia repair is a less invasive technique. Three or four small incisions are placed through which a laparoscope (thin tube with a tiny camera on the end) is placed within the body, guiding the surgical procedure with images transmitted to a monitor. The surgical tools are placed through the other incisions, and the is hernia repaired.
