About Robotic-Assisted Hernia Surgery

Beverly Hospital now offers robotic-assisted surgery to repair hernias. There are many benefits to choosing robotic surgery:

  • Smaller incisions: The robot system camera provides a full, detailed view of the surgical site without the need for a large incision. The surgical instruments are designed to be used through narrow incisions, as well. That means less discomfort after surgery and smaller scars later on.
  • Less tissue damage and bleeding: Smaller instruments and greater precision mean less muscle and connective tissue is damaged during the surgery, and bleeding is also reduced.
  • Fewer complications: A recent study found patients undergoing robotic surgery for inguinal hernia repair had fewer complications compared to patients who had open (larger incision) surgery for the same type of repair.
  • Faster healing: Less tissue damage and smaller incisions also lead to faster healing times, along with decreased swelling and bruising for a more comfortable postoperative experience overall.
  • Quicker return to your routine: Finally, faster healing and less bruising and swelling mean you can get back to your regular routines faster.
