da Vinci Hernia Repair Surgery

Robotic Hernia Surgery with da Vinci

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. 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?
