Procedure For Minimally Invasive Hernia Repair
Whether you have regular or minimally invasive hernia repair surgery, our specialist starts by administering anesthesia to keep you pain-free during the process. Because of this, you might have to avoid taking certain medications, foods, and beverages in advance, but our experienced team provides all instructions before the procedure.
After being sedated, our specialist makes three incisions in your abdomen; each incision is less than one centimeter in size; this is done to insert the laparoscope and unique tools necessary to perform the procedure. Then, our specialist inflates your abdomen with carbon dioxide to give good views of the surgical area. This harmless gas helps create more space in the cavity to view all of the internal structures easily.
After locating the hernia, our specialist repairs it. Our technique involves pushing the herniated tissue back into its initial position and strengthening all the weak areas with a surgical mesh. When our specialist is done with your hernia repair, they only require surgical tape to close your incisions. Our specialist carries out all minimally invasive hernia surgeries as outpatient procedures so that you can go home the same day.
