Robotic Hernia Surgery Longview TX
Adult hernias do not go away, they only get bigger with time. When a hernia progresses, robotic hernia surgery can be used to repair the problem. Dr. McDermott and his team are well versed in robotic hernia surgery. Robotic surgery allows the instruments to move with less torque on the abdominal wall but most importantly it allows Dr. McDermott to close the hole which is not possible with traditional laparoscopy. The mesh is then placed in a way that is much less painful than laparoscopic surgery and compared to open surgery, where an incision is made over the hernia of its entire length creating a much larger wound, the incisions can be barely noticed. Smaller hernias can often by missed in open surgery as well.
