Hernia Repair

Hernia Repair Banner

Hernias are a common condition that can affect men, women, and children of all ages. While some hernias can be managed through lifestyle changes, the only way to permanently fix a hernia is surgical intervention. An ARC general surgeon can assess a hernia and guide you through the surgical treatment options that best fit your condition, symptoms, and lifestyle.

Hernia repair surgery options

Abdominal wall hernias, such as hiatal, incisional, inguinal, umbilical, and ventral, can be repaired utilizing a variety of surgical techniques which may take advantage of the latest technological advancement, such as the use of da Vinci robotic platform. The da Vinci robotic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical option for adult patients requiring abdominal hernia surgery.

An ARC surgeon can discuss all available options and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each approach, helping a patient make an informed decision on the best approach. All ARC surgeons are trained in the latest abdominal wall hernia repair techniques.
