da Vinci® Surgery
What is a hernia?
A hernia occurs when tissue pushes through an opening in your abdomen (ventral hernia) or groin area (inguinal hernia).
A hernia can only be repaired with surgery. If you and your doctor decide that a surgical repair is right for you, talk to your doctor about all of your options, including minimally invasive surgery. One option your surgeon may present is robotic-assisted surgery.
What will your surgeon do?
If you and your surgeon decide that robotic-assisted surgery is right for you, your surgeon will use a 3D high-definition camera for a crystal-clear and magnified view of your hernia.
Your surgeon will sit at a console next to you and operate through a few small incisions using tiny instruments, including a camera. Your surgeon fully controls all instruments. Every hand movement is translated by the da Vinci® System in real-time to bend and rotate the instruments for a precise repair of your hernia.
