Laparoscopic/Robotic Surgery near Detroit, MI
Laparoscopic/Robotic Hernia Surgeons
Laparoscopic/robotic surgery generally refers to a minimally invasive surgical technique where surgeons perform surgery through several small incisions using a camera to view the procedure on a TV monitor. Because of advances in surgical instrumentation and imaging devices, the incisions are considerably smaller than with traditional or open surgical techniques. The surgeon views the hernia from inside the patient’s abdomen from the other side of the abdominal wall. The abdominal cavity is inflated with carbon dioxide, which is harmless so that the hernia surgeon has space to view from the other side of the abdominal wall. A laparoscopic hernia surgery can also be referred to as a minimally invasive surgery. Call (248)551-9090 to schedule an appointment today!

Benefits of Laparoscopic Surgery
Laparoscopic/robotic Surgery can have significant benefits over traditional surgery. These include:
- Reduces hospital stays
- Fewer wound infections
- Less pain
- Faster recovery time
- Less surgical trauma
- Improved outcomes
- Fewer disfiguring scars
Recovery with laparoscopic is typically faster than incisional surgeries, with on-average a week faster recovery time versus an open surgery. There are several additional benefits, which include the following:
- Less scarring due to the procedure involving less cutting
- Less time in the hospital
- Quicker healing time and less pain
- Less internal scarring
Laparoscopic/Robotic Surgical Procedure
Many surgeries that were once performed as open surgeries (using longer incisions of the abdominal wall) can now be performed using minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures. Your Michigan Hernia Surgery will determine if this approach is best for you.
A laparoscopic/robotic hernia repair may be recommended by one of our surgeons if there has been a previously failed open repair, the laparoscopic procedure is more appropriate than the incisional repair, or the patient has a bilateral hernia.
