Surgical Options in Hernia Repair
Multiple surgical approaches can be used to repair your hernia, including open surgical, laparoscopic, or robotic. Choosing the right one for you depends on your surgeon’s preference, your hernia type, and your unique situation.
Laparoscopic and robotic surgical repairs are minimally invasive, meaning only a small incision is required for a surgeon to be able to repair the hernia with instruments. An open surgery is the more traditional type of surgery in which a surgeon would make an incision at the site of the hernia.
