Robotic Surgery: Inguinal Hernia
A hernia occurs when tissue bulges through a weak area or a hole in the abdominal (belly) wall. An “inguinal” hernia happens in the groin or scrotum and usually requires surgery. At Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, our surgeons perform this repair using advancements that lessen the chance of a hernia returning and decrease the possibility of traditional surgery. Patients experience less pain and a shorter hospital stay.
Key to these advancements are:
- Our surgeons’ experience in an innovative technique called “component separation,” a major advance in hernia repair.
- Spartanburg Regional’s investment in state-of-the-art computer-guided tools , including the da Vinci Surgical System, or “robotic surgery.”
