Hernia Robotic Repair

Hernia Repair Performed through da Vinci Surgery

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. Early studies* suggest that robotic-assisted hernia repair with the da Vinci surgical system may get you back to what matters most … sooner.

How Can You Prepare For Surgery

To help you make an informed decision, consider bringing questions like these to your surgeon or doctor visit:

  • What medical options are available for my hernia?
  • What happens if I don’t get surgery?
  • What kind of experience do you have with my type of hernia?
  • Should I get a second opinion?
  • What is the difference between robotic-assisted surgery and laparoscopic surgery?
  • What type of anesthesia will I receive?
  • How long will surgery take?
  • Where will I have scars?
  • When will I go home? 
  • How soon can I lift light weights after surgery? Heavier weights?
