Surgeon uses robot to repair hernias

Minimally invasive procedure helps hernia patients heal faster

Hernias can be a pain. Or you may never know you have one. They can be difficult to detect. More than 20 million hernias are repaired every year around the world. A hernia is caused by increased pressure placed on a weak spot in the abdominal wall. Obesity, over exercising, constipation or chronic coughing can cause a hernia and it can worsen if left undetected and untreated. Northeast Baptist Hospital offers a minimally-invasive approach to correcting hernias. With robotic-assisted technology, Michael Albrecht, M.D., uses a 3D high-definition camera and innovative tools to view and repair hernias. Patients benefit from this surgical technique which can result in faster recovery time, less pain, less chance of hernia recurrence, and smaller scars than with traditional surgery. Dr. Albrecht emphasizes the importance of hernia screening for both men and women.
