Ventral Hernia Repair

A Minimally Invasive Solution for Your Discomfort

A hernia in your abdominal wall may not need immediate attention. Over time, however, the situation can worsen, causing you significant pain or discomfort. Left untreated, these hernias can result in strangulated tissues and other serious complications. Our surgeons at miVIP can help through providing minimally invasive ventral hernia repair.

Ventral hernias are most common in adults who have had abdominal surgery and did not properly heal. However, hernia information indicates that the condition can also occur at birth. In either case, our team can use cutting edge technology to quickly resolve the problem.

How Does Ventral Hernia Surgery Work?

Your miVIP surgeon will place you under general anesthesia for the procedure. During ventral hernia repair, a small incision is made over or next to the site of the hernia. The doctor will then move the tissues back into place. Additional stitching or surgical mesh may be needed to strengthen the abdominal wall or repair tissues.

Thanks to the minimally invasive approach, you at a low risk for:

·       Bleeding

·       Infection

·       Other complications

What to Expect After Your Procedure

Some patients do experience discomfort, for which a physician may prescribe pain medication. You should refrain from participating in any strenuous exercise for at least a few weeks or until your doctor clears you. Typically, you will be back into your normal routine within a month of the surgery.
