Do you see the scar? Transumbilical (“belly button”) entry for hernia repair using the da Vinci Single-Site System is an outpatient procedure that’s minimally invasive, with no visible scar. Advantages of minimally invasive procedures and this instrumentation include:

Single incision of approximately one inch
Safer outcomes
Quicker recovery times
Less pain
Minimal blood loss
Minimal scarring
Enhanced surgical precision, control and stability with 3D, high-definition visualization #hernia #herniarepair #daVinciRobot #daVinciSingleSite

Question: Do all hernia surgeries require mesh?
Answer: Not all hernia surgeries require mesh. It depends on the type of hernia as well as the size of the hernia. For inguinal hernias, mesh is always used. For other abdominal wall hernias (like ventral, umbilical, incisional hernias), mesh does not always need to be used in the repair. #hernia #umbilicalhernia #incisionalhernia #ventralhernia

Symptoms include bulging around pubic bone, a burning or aching sensation at the site of the bulge, groin pain or discomfort when lifting objects, coughing or bending over, and weakness or pressure at the site of the bulge. #InguinalHernia is the most common type of #hernia.
