Abdominal wall hernia is one of the most common operations performed in the United States. Recurrence and complications of such procedures often leave patients suffering from chronic pain and higher risk for repair. The robotic approach is highly effective for these procedures especially in enterolysis (freeing bowel adhesions).
With the assistance of the da Vinci® Si Surgical System, the latest evolution in robotics technology, surgeons can perform minimally invasive procedures with unmatched precision and control. The 3-D, high-definition image of the operating field provided by the da Vinci facilitates the visualization of tissue in difficult locations such as the deep pelvis, allowing for more precise dissections and suturing.
da Vinci surgery for abdominal wall hernia, which is offered at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Mass., provides patients many potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:
