A minimally invasive approach to hernia surgery
Tufts Medical Center Community Care surgeons use a variety of approaches to repair hernias, including minimally-invasive, robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System XI. Unlike traditional surgery that may require one or more long incisions, robotic surgery allows a surgeon to repair a hernia through a series of very small incisions. This offers several advantages to the patient, including:
- Less disturbance to healthy tissues
- Less post-operative discomfort
- A shorter recovery period
- A shorter or no hospital stay
What’s more, Tufts Medical Center Community Care takes a comprehensive approach to hernia surgery that involves the expertise of multiple physicians. Our surgeons collaborate with primary care physicians and medical specialists as necessary to ensure our patients’ health care needs are fully addressed.
