Robotic Ventral Hernia Repair by Dr Iraniha
Ventral hernia or abdominal wall hernia is a defect or weakness of the abdominal wall muscle which could be congenital or acquired and usually presents with an abdominal wall bulge with on and off pain and discomfort, especially during straining and heavy exercise. Some patients after having an open abdominal wall hernia could develop a hernia on the incision side which is called incisional hernia. Many techniques have been described for repairing a ventral and/or incisional hernia but among them, robotic ventral hernia repair is the most precise technique with the least risks and complications. Robotic platform with its wristed instrumentation and better visualization allows the surgeon to close the hernia defect primarily and place a mesh to reinforce the closure. The mesh would later incorporate into the abdominal wall and prevent the future hernia recurrence. Using the robotic surgery platform to repair the ventral hernia enables the surgeons to offer minimally invasive hernia repair to more patients with even larger and more complex hernia defects. This technique offers the patient less pain, faster recovery, quicker return to work and less long term complications.
Surgical techniques for robotic ventral hernia repair
Surgical techniques for robotic ventral hernia repair have continued to be refined in hopes of providing a repair with less chance of recurrence, less acute and chronic pain, less complications, faster recovery and better long term quality of life.
At surgical Oasis Institute, a discussion with Dr. Iraniha a robotic surgery expert with all types of hernias and is familiar with all methods and techniques of hernia repair would give the patient the best possible options and alternatives to reach the desired goals.
