What are Your Treatment Options for Hernia?
April 18, 2016
Have you been diagnosed with a hernia? Or do you just suspect you might have one? Dr. Joseph E. Garcia, General Surgeon, ARC Far West Medical Tower and ARC Southwest, says that “A hernia occurs when part of an internal organ or tissue bulges through a weak spot in the abdominal wall.”
A hernia can cause pain or a bulge in the affected area; it can also have no symptoms. But one thing that Dr. Garcia knows for certain is that “The only way to permanently fix a hernia is to surgically repair the holes.”
Dr. Garcia offers a surgical option for hernia sufferers that can often result in less pain; the da Vinci® surgical system. This robotic surgery system provides a magnified view and dexterous tools “beyond the capabilities of the human hand.”
